Photos of Young Bob Dylan Released

In 1961, Ted Russell shot photos of 21-year-old Bob Dylan while he was recording his first album.

An American publishing house, Rizzoli, released the book Bob Dylan: NYC 1961-1964 featuring previously unpublished photos of a young Dylan. The book features portraits of a 21-year-old Dylan during the years when the young musician was new to New York City, composing music in a tiny rented Greenwich Village apartment, and beginning a relationship with Suze Rotolo.

Ted Russell, a freelance photographer in those years, spent three years documenting the story of an unknown artist creating and releasing his first album.
