an in-depth look at the Beat Generation as seen through the lens of Allen Ginsberg

FLAVORPILL HOOKUP: A lucky reader who follows this event by clicking the green star to the right will receive an exhibition "Beat Memories" catalog!

Beat Memories presents an in-depth look at the Beat Generation as seen through the lens of Allen Ginsberg (1926–1997). Although well known for his poetry, Ginsberg was also an avid photo-
grapher, capturing the people and places around him in spontaneous, often intimate snapshots. His black-and-white photographs include portraits of William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, Jack Kerouac, and others, along with self-portraits. The images not only are revealing portrayals of celebrated personalities, but also convey the unique lifestyle and spirit of the Beats.
