(Gibson) Photographer Barry Feinstein, the man responsible for such iconic album cover-shots as Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin', Janis Joplin's Pearl and George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, died on October 20 in upstate New York, of natural causes. He was 80.

Feinstein's photos of Dylan during Dylan's 1966 electric tour remain some of the best-known images of the legendary singer-songwriter. Following his work with Dylan, Feinstein went on to shoot numerous album covers, including the infamous "dirty toilet" image used on The Rolling Stones' 1968 masterpiece, Beggars Banquet.

Feinstein's agent, Dave Brolan, said Feinstein was known for his integrity and modesty. "Barry would never tell you about anyone," Brolan said. "He'd never tell you a Dylan story or anything personal. He would never talk about himself. It was a hard push to get him to say anything about his work. He'd just say, 'Look at the pictures, good luck.'" more on this story
