About BEATITUDE: The Beat Attitude:

This collection of images taken in the 1960s and '70s by little-known poet/photographer/activist Joey Tranchina were stored away for nearly 50 years before being discovered by his son in 2018 and later shared with critic and art historian Dr. Anthony Bannon and art consultant and producer Dolores Lusitana.

BEATITUDE captures a cross-generational array of multi-cultural, race and gender diverse artists linked by a "Beat" aesthetic which founded an early social movement that championed  humanity over economy, ecology over industry, and equal rights for women and men regardless of race, social status, or sexual orientation.

BEATITUDE: The Beat Attitude, a book of Joey Tranchina's photographs, with an essay by Bannon and introduction by American Book Award winning poet Ed Sanders, is forthcoming internationally from Steidl Verlag.

"The Palm Beach Photographic Centre's 35 years of service in Florida – and the nation – is nicely summarized by BEATITUDE, for ours has definitely been a Beat Attitude, always ready for change, proceeding with a vision to participate in a spirit of excellence and achievement," says NeJame. "This show is a perfect way to begin our 35th anniversary celebration—and in conjunction with this exhibition we will be presenting a series of lectures, conversations, and special guests, who participated in the Beat revolution.
