Bob Dylan: Photos as a young rock star; music box set collection to be released
The exhibition is titled "Bob Dylan: The Rock Explosion 1961-66" and will feature 60 photographs from New York photographer Daniel Kramer.
"I didn't know much about this music but when I heard this song, and this young guy with a guitar, and no other musicians, it was overwhelming," says Kramer. "The lyrics were so strong, and he was so young, and willing to say things that people didn't say on public entertainment... So I thought he would be a very good subject for a portrait for my portfolio."
The one-hour session quickly turned into five hours and then the two met up over the next year, including at the 1964 Woodstock festival.
"When I began he was a folk singer with one guitar and no back-up guys, no electrics, and one year later he's at a huge stadium with huge speakers all over. He had a band, and he was electric with a whole new music," says Kramer.
The Paris show will run until July 15.
