William Burroughs’s typewriter

New baby + new job = so very little time to blog. So here is a quick nod towards the the work of art photographer Peter Ross who was recently given access to the New York apartment of William Burroughs, which has been preserved, like some beat version of the Blue Peter time capsule. since his death in 1997. Burroughs lived in the former locker room of a Bowery YMCA in a windowless space known as “the bunker”. His friend, the poet John Giorno, has kept the apartment exactly as it was, leaving many of Burroughs’s possessions sitting where he left them.
