Robert Frank and Peter Orlovsky in Allen Ginsberg's apartment
On the evening of April 3, 1997, Ginsberg had just been released from hospital after being diagnosed with liver cancer. He came home to convalesce on April 3, on the morning of the 4th he was in a coma, and died at 2:30 am on April 5th. This is possibly the last photograph that Ginsberg took.
