Behind The Picture Frame

Bob Dylan

In 1965, hailed as the world's most-loved folk poet, Dylan brought rock into his repertoire, refusing to stand still. "I don't call myself a poet," he stated, "I'm a trapeze artist." 50 years on, Behind The Picture Frame celebrates Dylan's ingenuity and the excitement of those times.

Behind the Picture Frame follows Dylan from the scene of his Greenwich Village debut, to the spotlights of London's Royal Albert Hall. Taken between 1962 and 1966 by some of the world's greatest photographers, the series presents 10 highly collectable editions.

Each archival print is signed as a mark of authenticity by the artist himself, Bob Dylan.
