Product description


..the photography of Burroughs reveals several sides to the writer that are rarely included in the wildman mythology. Taking Shots....explores the idea of Burroughs not just as a photographer in his own right, but as a complex artist with ideas that are often extremely personal. --The Guardian, 16th January 2014

Burroughs pictorial cut-ups are one of the most striking features....his ability to open up expanded planes of reality. --FT Magazine, 17th January 2014

...a large collection of his snapshots, assemblages and collages, along with a series of essays on his photographic work. You never see him smile. You only see him grimace. Look and learn. --Literary Review, 1st February 2014
