Although it's not mentioned in this obit, when I met Barry he was about to be married to Mary Travers of PP&M, and later became the father of one of her daughters - he took many of the trio's album cover photos during the 1960s.

US photographer Barry Feinstein, best known for taking enduring
pictures of musicians such as Bob Dylan and George Harrison, has died
He was responsible for capturing more than 500 record sleeves,
including Harrison's All Things Must Pass album.
The Rolling Stones sleeve for Beggars Banquet, shot in a graffiti-
covered toilet, was also Feinstein's work.
Friend and agent Dave Brolan paid tribute, calling him a "lovely man
and a real talent".
Feinstein's work recently featured in Martin Scorsese's documentary
about Harrison, Living in the Material World.
Feinstein's picture of Dylan at a damp ferry port on the banks of the
River Severn was also used in No Direction Home, Scorsese's 2005 film
about the musician.
The photographer, who was reluctant to talk about the stars he shot,
was also the on-set photographer for Steve McQueen's film Bullitt.
Originally from the US, he shot most of his work in the UK. He died of
natural causes on Thursday in Woodstock, New York state.
