Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Peter Orlovsky and others of the Beat generation of writers, poets, and activists. The photographs are drawn on the collection of close to 8,000 prints recently donated by The Rossy Family Foundation to the University of Toronto Art Centre and Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library.
