"As friend, cultural co-worker, and sometime subject of Fred McDarrah and his neighborly camera I’ve marveled at his historic constancy, decades of endurance."—Allen Ginsberg
"McDarrah’s photographs tell it like it really was"—New York Magazine
Beat Generation features candid photographs of modern icons like Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Diane di Prima, alongside key early Beat works, many out-of-print or unavailable for years. The combination of text and images illustrates the Beat lifestyle in their own words. With a short introductory essay on the Beat movement, this is an authoritative and fascinating look at a uniquely American genre.
Fred W. McDarrah has exhibited his photos of the Beat generation around the world. The long-time Photo Editor for New York’s Village Voice, his photos have appeared in numerous books, many coauthored with his wife, Gloria S. McDarrah, including The Beat Scene, Kerouac and Friends, and The Artist’s World in Pictures.
