Even if you’ve never heard of him you know his stuff – he shot the cover of Dylan’s 1966 classic “Blonde on Blonde,” for starters. His new book, “Women Then: Photographs 1954 – 1969,” chronicles some of the hottest and coolest chicks of the “Mad Men” era, including Nico, Faye Dunaway, Edie Sedgwick, and Catherine Deneuvem — along with a few surprises like the young Rolling Stones in drag.
