Allen Ginsberg Photographs

Allen Ginsberg’s photo series entitled, “Beat Memories” is on display at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. It was free museum day so I went to check them out. Each photograph is accompanied by a handwritten description of what was going on at that moment. Here are some of my favorites:

There were several travel photos of him standing in front of various monuments which had somewhat of a comical appeal. Here he is in front of Red Square in Moscow.

I also enjoyed his series of photographs out his apartment window during various seasons.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
