"Thin Wild Mercury
reminds me of what books once were... the hand wrought objet d’art."
The award-winning book, Thin Wild Mercury
, presents photographs of Bob Dylan by Jerry Schatzberg, amongst which are some of the most visually arresting portraits of the artist ever taken.
A photographer for publications such as Vogue and Life magazines, Schatzberg first met Dylan during the recording of Highway 61 Revisited. As well as photographing him in the recording studio, on stage and off, and shooting the controversial blurred cover of Blonde On Blonde, Schatzberg also created a series of iconic formal studio portraits of unparalleled poetic beauty.
In Thin Wild Mercury
Jerry Schatzberg tells the story behind his photographs of Bob Dylan for the very first time. Strictly limited to only 1,500 signed copies.
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.
