Charles Brittin

The 82-year-old artist and photographer of Venice’s beat scene died Jan. 23. Brittin’s photos are invaluable for visualizing Venice in the 1950s and 60s. He also photographed the civil rights movement in Southern California and the deep South.

Brittin’s friend, Marsha Getzler of the Temple of Man, says he will be honored with a memorial when a scheduled showing of his work opens in April at the Michael Kohn Gallery in Hollywood.
