Brian Graham: Absurdity is King

Casa Fernando Pessoa, Lisbon, Portugal
The Casa Fernando Pessoa exhibits the work of photographer Brian Graham. “Graham’s photographs document the twilight of the “Beats,” or at least of those “Beats” who conducted their earthly existences on the Lower East Side of New York City in the 1980s and ‘90s.” So writes Luc Sante in his introduction to the catalogue that includes several photos of Harry Smith.
