Daniel Kramer is one of America’s most noted music and portrait photographers. His seminal pictures of Bob Dylan in 1964 and ’65 not only revealed the rising young star to international audiences but set a standard by which all other rock portraits would be judged.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, and self-educated in photography, Kramer worked as an assistant to Philippe Halsman and Allan and Diane Arbus before gaining an international reputation of his own. His 1967 book, Bob Dylan, was critically acclaimed as were the three Dylan album covers Kramer created—Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Biograph. Rolling Stone magazine called Kramer “the photographer most closely associated with Bob Dylan.”

Kramer’s photographs have been shown or collected by the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the International Center of Photography, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum Folkwang in Germany, the George Eastman House, and other prestigious institutions.
