The songwriting genius part I knew about, but the fact that Bob Dylan was once a hottie had never occurred to me. Until today. Specifically, until looking at this photograph at Blender Gallery in Paddington, which is currently hosting an exhibition of images of Dylan. This picture was shot at Woodstock NY in 1968 by Elliott Landy, and the internet now tells me it’s from the cover of Dylan’s 1969 album Nashville Skyline. (Should know this, considering the record contains two of my favourite Dylan songs: “Girl From The Northwest Country” and “Lay Lady Lay”)
The exhibition, titled “Bringing It All Back Home”, finishes this Tuesday August 10, so get on your bike!
