I see. So I heard that the poet Allen Ginsberg was photographed in NY, but what was the background?
Hori: I like Allen Ginsberg when I was in high school.
There is a collection of poems in a used bookstore, and for high school students, used books are expensive, so I went and browsed several times. So, when I thought, "Let's buy today," the bookstore talked and introduced me to various other poets books.
The house policy was not to read Yukio Mishima, and when I was told, it was fun to read Hisoijiso and I was so excited to read it. At school, it is treated as a "dangerous guy", but on the contrary, I think that is good. Read it with Hisoijiso during class. (lol)
So I read Ginsberg and thought it was interesting. At that time, there was no stereotypes that would disturb the judgment, such as adult slangs, and came in quickly. After coming out of Nagoya in Tokyo, he learned that there was a reading of Ginsberg poetry, and said, "This has no choice but to go." At the venue, a celebrity that everyone knew was sitting nearby.
After reading, the distance to Ginsberg was about 50 meters, but it was an unforgettable experience that "Raw Ginsberg is in front of me."
So, as I mentioned earlier, I think it was within a week after moving to NY, but at that time there was a newspaper that contains live information on "New York Times", where "Allen Ginsberg / Poetrey Reading". I found the word. I didn't know that I was doing such an activity, but I went to the church at the venue and took about four photos quietly. That was the first.
