Happy Birthday Daniel Kramer!

Today is photographer Daniel Kramer’s birthday. I’m not sure how old Daniel is because he would never tell me his year of birth! His photos are timeless. When I first started championing significant photographs documenting musical artists, Daniel Kramer was at the top of my list along with Alfred Wertheimer. I thought of both of them as having done monumental work with Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley.

Though known throughout the world for his photos of Bob Dylan, including the covers of Bringing it All Back HomeHighway 61 Revisited, and Biograph, this photo above of Mimi and Richard Farina, taken in Woodstock, New York in 1965 is one of my favorites of Daniel’s. There are so many things about this photo that I love.

Happy birthday Dan!
