BILL MORGAN'S NORTH BEACH TOUR

MORGAN'S BEAT TOUR
San Francisco 2003

I signed up for a walking tour through North Beach with Bill. For a week or so he gave free walking tours to all the beat haunts, houses, etc. in the area. He is depicted here speaking to the tour in front of Vesuvio's in Kerouac Street across from City Lights Books.
BILL MORGAN

BILL MORGAN
San Francisco, 2003

Bill runs the Ginsberg Trust in New York. He is also an author, painter and archival consultant. He has been very important to the Beat community with his work on their behalf and the two Beat historical tour books he wrote. I got to do the cover photograph on his latest as well as a lot of photographs on the inside. He kept telling me that he was too hard to shoot. I just kept following his rimmed-lit hair around City Lights until he relaxed enough for the photograph.
