BOB DYLAN, FOLKSINGER 1962-64; PHOTO ESSAY #1 (2018): Long ago, far away

Although there were no photographers and phone photos allowed at the recent Bob Dylan concert in Auckland, the promoters and Dylan's management provided images to the media to cover any articles written.

Unfortunately none of them were of much visual relevance because they were not recent. (A selection came from 2009).

But there such an interesting series of images of the very young Dylan -- just into his 20s when he was the emerging folksinger and soon to be the "spokesman for a generation" -- that it seems a shame to let them go unused.

So here we present a kind of photo essay of Bob Dylan in the studio when the endless highway was still before him.

We will post another series of shots from Dylan in 1965.
