Bob Dylan is turning 70 on May 24 and it seems fitting to spend this month combing through the archives to share with you some of Jim’s classic Dylan photos as well as Dylan shots that will be unveiled for the very first time here on this blog.
Inarguably, Jim’s most famous Dylan shot is the one he called, “Dylan With Tire,” seen here in all its enigmatic glory. It’s one of Jim’s in-the-moment shots that I find especially compelling for many reasons. I think it captures such an optimistic and ebullient and inspiring time in Dylan’s life. And also Jim’s, come to think of it.
