The AP reports that Barry Feinstein, a longtime Woodstock resident who took many iconic photographs of rock stars in the '60s and '70s, died early on Thursday, October 20 at the age of 80.
From the Wall Street Journal:
Agent Dave Brolan says the Woodstock resident died early Thursday. He'd suffered various ailments and was hospitalized with an infection.
Feinstein's best known images include the skinny, side-glancing picture of Dylan on the cover of 1964's "The Times They Are A-Changin'" and of Harrison sitting among garden gnomes on his 1970 solo album, "All Things Must Pass."
Many of Feinstein's photographs of Dylan from the '60s and '70s are collected in a 2008 book, Real Moments. The online UK magazine Sabotage Times wrote recently that the friendship between Feinstein and the famously reclusive Dylan made the photos possible. The magazine quotes Feinstein:
“The mutual trust, respect and friendship we had for each other are reflected in these photographs,” says Barry. “I liked his work, he liked mine. He knew I would make him look interesting – and he was interesting. I knew I was in the presence of genius.”
