Artist's info:
Born in Brooklyn, Nat Finkelstein (1933-2009) studied photography under Alexey Brodovitch, the legendary art director of Harper's Bazaar, and worked as a photojournalist for the Black Star and PIX photo agencies, reporting primarily on the political developments of various subcultures in New York City in the 1960s.
In 1964 Finkelstein entered Andy Warhol's Factory as a photojournalist and remained for three years; Finkelstein's photographs from this period are now regarded as some of the most iconic of the time.

Photographe, cinéaste, graphiste, peintre: les qualificatifs pleuvent lorsqu'il s'agit de désigner William Klein.

Jerry and Dylan first met in 1965 while the latter was recording Highway 61 Revisited. They became friends and, over the course of the next year, Jerry took an extraordinary collection of photographs of Dylan recording, playing live, socialising and in Jerry's studio. Having just 'gone electric' and in the process of recording Blonde on Blonde, the photos capture Dylan at the most exciting point of his career.

The history of the photographic book goes back well more than a century; the medium of photography and the book format were understood very early on to relate to each other on both technical and aesthetic levels. The examples of truly great combinations of photographic image and text, great design and typography bound together as books are numerous and make up an impressive artistic, social and documentary statement of the 20th century. Writer and rare book expert Andrew Roth has selected for this volume a group of 101 of the best photography books ever published.
