Each week, we select the most interesting Jewish obituary. Today, it is that of Barry Feinstein, who died a week ago at 80. Feinstein, born in Philadelphia, was a rock and celebrity photographer, and while his subjects included George Harrison, Janis Joplin, and Marlon Brando, his most memorable partnership was with Bob Dylan, whom he met back when Dylan was a Village folkie managed by Feinstein’s friend, the immensely influential Albert Grossman. Feinstein took the image that adorns the cover of Dylan’s third album, The Times They Are A-Changin’; was the photographer on the legendary Europe tour that Dylan embarked on with the Hawks (later The Band) in 1966; and only a few years ago published a book of photographs accompanied by Dylan’s original poems. Recently, Feinstein had a show at the Morrison Hotel Gallery; you can view some of those photographs here. You will find many you already know.
