In April 1974 Bob Dylan began taking art classes from Norman Raeben, a 73-year-old Russian immigrant and former boxer who, according to Dylan, had been close friends with Soutine, Picasso, and Modigliani.
Raeban’s teaching methods radically changed the musician’s way of thinking, and he would later tell an interviewer, “I went home after that first day and my wife never did understand me ever since that day. That’s when our marriage started breaking up. She never knew what I was talking about, what I was thinking about, and I couldn’t possibly explain it.”
Taken in the Amityville house (Amityville Horror) Gene Campbell, who was a professional photographer, was brought into the house in 1976. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared, with black and white film throughout the night. There are literally rolls of film with nothing on them. There’s only one picture of the little boy.
