Kate Simon on William Burroughs and Carl Apfelschnitt

In the latest interview in the Photographing William S. Burroughs series, Kate Simon spoke with Niamh White about another photograph in SHOWstudio Shop's current exhibition of portraits of writer William Burroughs. Recalling the moment she took the photograph, Burroughs in front of Carl Apfelschnitt drawing, The Bunker, NYCSimon spoke about her own relationship with the abstract artist whose drawing is shown behind Burroughs, and his influence on her subject and his later experiments with visual art. The interview took a poignant turn as the photographer recalled the young artists in their circle who died of AIDS.
