Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg

Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and curated by senior curator of photographs Sarah Greenough, Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg features more than 110 black-and-white works—many accompanied by Ginsberg’s intimate, handwritten captions—that convey the spontaneity, freedom, and exuberant lifestyle of the Beat Generation.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Greenough that explores the connection between Ginsberg’s poetry and photography, and a 1991 interview between Ginsberg and Thomas Gladysz. The catalogue also includes a selected bibliography and chronology of Ginsberg’s photographic activity.
