As Columbia Records’ official photographer, Don Hunstein was the man behind some of the most enduring images of 20th century music. He photographed Bob Dylan for the cover of his Freewheelin album and for the “Like A Rolling Stone” sessions, Johnny Cash for his classic albums of the 1960s, and such notable performers as Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin, and Simon & Garfunkel, among others. Hunstein’s work brilliantly captures both the public and privates sides of these musicians, providing a nuanced images of instantly recognizable artists.
