Description: (CIRCLE OF THE BEAT POET DIANE DI PRIMA 1934- )
Group of 123 black-and-white Polaroid prints of Diane di Prima and her sexy and creative friends by an uncredited photographer, which includes vernacular images of New York City.
Includes 3 prints of di Prima (whose autobiography Memoirs of a Beatnik was referred to as "unabashedly erotic"), intimate homoerotic scenes, snapshots of unidentified intellectual figures, witty pictures of the East Village, and poetic images in a domestic setting. Polaroid prints, the images measuring 3 3/4x23 inches (9.5x7.6 cm.), several with handwritten dates, in ink, on verso. Circa 1966

Notes: A charming group of personal photographs by an unidentified flaneur, with scenes of New York City, sweet domestic tableaux, and quiet studies of men, some in suits and ties, others naked or aroused. Di Prima, in a long braid and cotton bathrobe, appears with a bearded man.
