Robert Frank, Jack Kerouac, and Avant-garde Visual Culture of the Late 1950s—A Panel Discussion
Jeff L. Rosenheim, curator, Department of Photographs, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, moderates a panel with Luc Sante, writer and critic, and author of Lowlife: Lures and Snares of Old New York (1991); and Barney Rosset, legendary former owner of Grove Press and founder of Evergreen Review. Known for printing such censored classics as D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer, Rosset released Frank’s groundbreaking book, The Americans, with an introduction written by Jack Kerouac in 1959.
