Portraits of the Beat Generation

 

An exhibition of photographs by Harry Redl

January 11 - 29, 2010

Harry Redl had the instincts to find his way into the most interesting circles in San Francisco at the peak of an incredible period -- no small thing for someone who had not so long ago arrived from Austria. He also had the wisdom to follow those people with his camera and his tape recorder, to have the faith in his instincts to create these photographs that have, like all photographs, new meanings over time. Without Harry's photographs we would know much less about the late 1950s and less about the personalities -- artists, poets, filmmakers -- he captured. So I love the fact that this site can provide free access, and everyone has a chance to see at least the tip of the iceberg.
