Did you know Bob Dylan came to Liverpool in 1966 while he was on tour? I didn’t, until our lovely couple Kara and Gary (who marry in October) came up with a gem of an idea for their e-shoot down Dublin Street in L3.  Kara is a massive fan and wanted to visit the location where he encountered some ragged kids on the dock road.  This brief article http://gerryco23.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/barry-feinstein-dylan-and-liverpool/ is fascinating, and I just love the photos. It was great to be able to compare the location to how it is now; the then derelict warehouse is still standing derelict so we had great fun finding the spots Feinstein used.  Unfortunately, there’s like 100% more traffic now to spoil the shots, and the lovely cobbled street has been tarmaced and the wasteland built on.  Although the little pub is still on the corner of Dublin Street.  The best thing about Feinstein’s images though are those little urchin-like kids posing with Dylan – they’re all grow up now and some have sadly passed away. They probably didn’t have had a clue who he was at the time, but what a brilliant anecdote to have. Anyway, check out a few of the images from our interpretation of Feinstein’s Dylan images, and see if you can spot the same locations.

Hello..just seen this. It was myself who made the BBC film about the 1966 incident and tracked down the ‘children’. Sadly Sony keep taking the film down off YouTube. I have taken many over the years to the location and nice to see others doing it too. Just one note of error in the piece.NONE of the children have passed away. They are all alive. One couldnt make it to the film shoot on the day (livivng far away) and another was reluctant to be filmed but did attend the get together

[…] You might remember my blog post about Kara & Gary and their super cool vinyl wedding invitations. Well their wedding is fast approaching and they recently had a pre-wedding shoot by their chosen wedding photographers, Raw Wedding Photography. I just have to share the photos as they’re amazing and a taster of what the photos are going to be like on the big day! See the shoot here […]

I love the use of hue making them black and white! Top quality.

Thanks Justin. I think B&W rocks.

WOW! We absolutely LOVE how these photgraphs turned out! We had such a great morning larking around posing!! Thanks ever so much Kenny, we are so excited to see the rest of the pics. Can’t wait! x
