Press Event: Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg

Some of the most compelling photographs taken by renowned 20th-century American poet Allen Ginsberg (1926–1997) of himself and his fellow Beat poets and writers—including William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, and Jack Kerouac are the subject of the first scholarly exhibition and catalogue of these works. 'Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg' will explore all facets of his photographs through 80 black-and-white portraits, on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, from May 2 through September 16, 2010.
