ferlinghetti ginsberg nicaragua

NO ONE CAN UNDERESTIMATE THE CLEAR LENS OF CHRISTOPHER FELVER. He’s the master of an entire generation of poets, artists and thinkers. Like Darwin he believes in the universality of the face and documents the Beatific City of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Gary Snyder, Diane DiPrima and all the branches of this new freedom and criticism that a generation extolled. He experiences it like a dharma bum on a mountain plateau surrounded by friends with a smile for the whole adventure. This series is like Robert Frank on joy or David Amram playing six musical instruments at once. Moreover, Felver is a late member of this resistance which is a permanent revolution. He is a man with many arms and eyes.
