This Autumn (8 October – 21 November), Proud Chelsea will be hosting the exhibit ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’, a series of portraits by photographer Don Hunstein, who worked closely with Dylan in the early ’60s.
The exhibition also includes images of Dylan recording ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ in 1965.
Hunstein’s images captured Dylan at a young age. The photographer also shot for Columbia Records, and has photographed the likes of Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin and Simon & Garfunkel.
Last summer, an exhibition dedicated to Hunstein’s photography took place at the Rockarchive Gallery in Islington. It featured images of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.
A poster reveals that Dylan’s October ’63 solo concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall is sold out.
This shot was taken in December ’61, during the same photoshoot that produced the singer’s first album cover photograph.
At the exhibit, you will be able to see photographs including the legendary ‘The Freewheelin‟ (1963) album cover image, which brought Dylan international fame and launched his career.
