About the image
A young, relative unknown at the time, Bob Dylan brought a bullwhip with him to the Newport Folk Festival in 1963, he was seen just wandering around whipping and cracking it by himself.

"I saw him walking across the courtyard and walked up to him. I told him I'd like to do a story about him. He said, "That'd be cool".

This was the year "Dylan became Dylan" as some say. It was during the closing number that Peter Paul & Mary, along with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and The Freedom Singers all joined him onstage to perform Dylan's 'Blowin' in the Wind'. It was the event that officially put Dylan on the map.
