The photo above shows writer William S. Burroughs at the Paris Beat Hotel. This here as an extra to our previous report about the first US-screening of a new documentary focusing on the now famous hotel in France:

OMC Gallery for Contemporary Arts presents a special exhibition of photography  from ‘The Beat Hotel and Other Images Made for the Future’ by Harold Chapman. It includes selected vintage and period Photographs from 1947 – 2012 and starts March 24 for an almost 4 weeks long run.

As a spokesman of OMC Gallery says: “This exclusive exhibition takes us to 9, Rue Gît-le-Cœur and a place nick-named the Beat Hotel. 55 years ago this run-down, 42 room residence in Paris’ Latin Quarter is famed for housing some of the most important writers, poets and artists of the Beat Generation during the mid-20th century.

We have some exclusive photos which are featured at OMC Gallery in Huntington Beach, Ca. More information at the official website.
