WOODSTOCK, N.Y. (AP) — Photographer Barry Feinstein, who captured behind-the-scenes images from rock’s golden age and shot iconic album covers for Bob Dylan and George Harrison, has died in upstate New York. He was 80.
Agent Dave Brolan says the Woodstock resident died early Thursday. He’d suffered various ailments and was hospitalized with an infection.
Feinstein’s best known images include the skinny, side-glancing picture of Dylan on the cover of 1964’s “The Times They Are A-Changin”’ and of Harrison sitting among garden gnomes on his 1970 solo album, “All Things Must Pass.”
But Feinstein had a varied career that ranged from shooting Hollywood stars like Steve McQueen and Judy Garland to top rock stars of the 1960s and 1970s.
Feinstein is survived by wife Judith Jamieson and two children from previous marriages.
