Dylan In Woodstock is a book of perhaps the most intimate photographs of Bob Dylan ever taken, and a fascinating insight into a period of astonishing creativity, which spawned the legendary Basement Tapes, Harding and Nashville Skyline albums.But Bob Dylan's time in Woodstock was also a period where he withdrew from the public eye. American photographer Elliot Landy's beautifully atmospheric and informal photographs recover these lost years, capturing Dylan as he's never been seen since. They represent a unique collaboration between photographer and subject, each at the peak of his powers.
'The most wonderful photographs of Dylan.' The Rolling StoneAmerican photographer Elliott Landy was there in Woodstock during that period and captured probably the most striking and intimate photographs of Bob Dylan ever taken, including the iconic cover shot for Nashville Skyline.
Elliott Landy provides an insightful commentary to the photographs throughout his book.'When we arrived at Bob's house, we walked right into the living room, among all the people. I was quite nervous until Bob's wife Sara came over and asked me, very graciously and lovingly, if I wanted anything. She made me feel comfortable. I didn't see Bob, but he could have been there - I might not have recognised him. He was probably wearing his glasses and wouldn't have looked like his pictures. We were only there for a moment, because we did not find Levon. But I remember Sara coming to talk to us - she was stunningly beautiful, inside and out. That was our first brief meeting.'
