This is a black and white photograph of a group portrait of three men. From left to right: Michael McClure, Bob Dylan, and Allen Ginsberg. Ginsberg and Dylan hold cigarettes and McClure has his hands partially in his front pants pockets. The three appear to be in conversation.

Micaëla Gallery printout:"McCLURE, DYLAN, AND GINSBERG / North Beach, San Francisco 1965 / This session was arranged the night before at a party after Bob Dylan's concert at the Berkeley Community Theater. Allen Ginsberg introduced me to Dylan and we arranged to do a photo session (for the Blonde on Blonde album) the same day as the Beat's last gathering at City Lights Books. At City Lights we hid out in the basement with Dylan and when the people started to break the door down we climbed out a window and ran down the alley and took this photograph. I was in college and living at home during the Beat period. I had to mow the lawn before I could borrow the car and go to San Francisco to shoot this photo and the City Lights Books last gathering of the Beats event."
