Robert Giard (1939-2002) was a portrait, landscape and figure photographer, with a special focus on portraiture of gay and lesbian writers. This exhibition was culled from Giard's collection of over 600 photographs taken of LGBT writers over the course of his career and includes portraits of Allen Ginsburg, Tony Kushner and Adrienne Rich.
