"The extraordinary, captured."
This was one of my first shoots for VANITY FAIR. Allen Ginsberg was going to be in town for a few days. I was told to meet him at his hotel at a certain time during one of the first days during his stay. I was there and we did a shoot in the room he was staying in but for some reason the photo did just not seem to work. It was time for plan B so I asked him if during the days that he was in town if I could follow him and take photos to try to get a better shot. I was excited that this famous poet from the Beat Generation let me tag along, I even ended up becoming his accidental tourist guide showing him around town! What you see here is the photo published and some of the photos that I took while we were "sightseeing".
