This collection contains 22 gelatin silver photographs of Kenneth Patchen.
Kenneth Patchen (December 13, 1911 - January 8, 1972) was an American poet and novelist. He experimented with different forms
of writing and incorporated painting, drawing, and jazz music into his works, which were often compared with those of William
Blake and Walt Whitman.
