Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of vintage photo booth strips, “drugstore” prints, and uniquely captioned prints by renowned poet Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997). This group of photographs made between the late 40s and early 80s, traces his life from New York to San Francisco to Tangier and elsewhere. His pictures are candid photographs of legendry “Beat” writers  and poets – including William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, and Jack Kerouac as well as the counterculture generation.  The early photographs were taken as his friends were on the cusp of achieving great fame and notoriety and reveal an “intimate communication” between Ginsberg and his subjects.
