Product Description

. Allen Ginsberg began photographing in the late 1940s with a small, second-hand Kodak camera. For the next fifteen years he took photographs of himself, his friends, and lovers, including the writers & poets Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, and Gregory Corso, as well as Beat personality Neal Cassady. He abandoned the medium in 1963 and took it up again in the 1980s, when he was encouraged by photographers Berenice Abbott and Robert Frank to reprint his earlier work and make new portraits; these included more images of longtime friends as well as other acquaintances. More than 70 prints are brilliantly reproduced. Illsus., 70 tritone, 30 duotone, 5 in color.
