Taking Shots: The Photography of William S. Burroughs

Burroughs’ Work as a Photographist Acknowledged in London 

Patricia Allmer and John Sears, the curators of Taking Shots: The Photography of William S. Burroughs, talk about the man and the genesis of this exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery. Despite his prolific achievements as a novelist, essayist, spoken word performer and painter, Burroughs’ work as a photographer is rarely acknowledged. Coinciding with the centenary of Burroughs’ birth, Taking Shots will be the first exhibition worldwide to focus on Burroughs’ vast photographic oeuvre and offers new and important insights into his artistic and creative processes.
