The man who shot the covers of Bob Dylan’s ‘The Times They Are-A Changin’ and Janis Joplin’s ‘Pearl’, Barry Feinstein, has died aged 80.

The photographer died of natural causes in upstate New York earlier today (October 20). He also took the photo on the cover of George Harrison’s ‘All Things Must Pass’ and photographed a host of other icons, including Frank Sinatra, Hollywood actor Steve McQueen, Judy Garland and politcians such as John F Kennedy and Richard Nixon, reports Rolling Stone.

Feinstein was behind the original image of a dirty toilet and a graffiti covered bathroom stall in a Porsche repair shop in Los Angeles that was intended for the cover of The Rolling Stones‘Beggars Banquet’. However the imaged was too explicit and was replaced with a white cover, but later editions of the album featured the original photo.

In 1968 Feinstein directed the film You Are What You Eat, which starred David Crosby of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
