“Johnny in the Basement” by Mark Hamilton. See a bigger version of this photo here.

The New Zealand photographer Mark Hamilton has made a series of photographs inspired by lyrics from Bob Dylan songs.

The photos were exhibited backstage atClaudelands Arena in Hamilton, New Zealand when Dylan played the venue August 9 and 10.

The photographer was hoping Dylan would see the photos and like them.

“Imagine if he didn’t like it, if he retires after seeing those pictures!” Hamilton told the Waikato Times.

“At the end of the day they’re my interpretations and that’s art. It’s even like Bob Dylan himself, he reinterprets his music all the time. He’ll record it for an album but he’ll never play it the same again.”

Check out a bunch of the photos here.
