His images of the poet, painter, and legendary publisher have appeared in Ferlinghetti Portrait (1998), Beat (2007), and a great many other books and publications; his work has been exhibited in numerous galleries, libraries, and museums the world over; and his films West Coast: Beat and Beyond (1984), The Coney Island of Lawrence Ferlinghetti (1996) have received critical acclaim. His latest film, Ferlinghetti: A Rebirth of Wonder (2013) is the definitive documentary of Ferlinghetti’s life and work.
