Peter Ross has made a series of photographs of William Burroughs' goods and chattels, and they're a compelling view of the iconic author. Says Ross, "William Burroughs lived for many years in the former locker room of an 1880s YMCA, on the Bowery in New York City. The almost windowless space was known as The Bunker. When he died in 1997, his friend and mine, John Giorno, kept the apartment intact, with many of Burroughs’s possessions sitting as they were. ... His bedroom is as he left it, with all his stuff in place."
