Allen Ginsberg’s Photographs On View at the Contemporary Jewish MuseumAuthor:Alex Bigman
This subterranean culture is well documented in works like Jack Kerouac’s On the Road or Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl.” However, Beat Memories, now at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, would seem to offer a rarer pleasure: Visual access to the beat world, in the form of several dozen photographs taken by Allen Ginsberg.
