Overview


In August 1964, twenty-one-year-old photographer Douglas R. Gilbert, on assignment for Look magazine, photographed an up-and-coming folk singer named Bob Dylan. Just twenty-three years old, Dylan had already composed a striking body of work, including "Blowin' in the Wind," yet he himself was still relatively unknown. All that was about to change. For more than a week, Gilbert photographed a surprisingly open Bob Dylan, smiling and relaxed among friends like musician John Sebastian and poet Allen Ginsberg. To Gilbert's dismay, Look deemed Dylan's appearance "too scruffy" for a family magazine, and the images remained unpublished and unseen, until now. Featuring veteran music journalist Dave Marsh's insightful text, Forever Young unforgettably captures a pivotal time in Bob Dylan's extraordinary career--the time when he began transforming not just folk but all of popular music.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bob Dylan is as popular as ever: first Rolling Stone Magazine calls Like a Rolling Stone the best song of all time; then Volume 1 of his Chronicles is released; then a Martin Scorsese documentary premieres on PBS. This album of black-and-white photos depicts him as a rising musician barely into his twenties and on the verge of stardom. At the time, Gilbert was dispatched by Look magazine to photograph Bob in such places as Woodstock, NY, and the Newport Folk Festival. Bob is captured conversing with friends, practicing with fellow musicians, and writing alone at his desk. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
