Photography: Charles Bukowski

Henry Charles Bukowski (born Heinrich Karl Bukowski; August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994)

Novelist, Poet, Drunk – Charles Bukowski wrote about the seedy side of LA from his own experiance. He was one of those authors who is truly great but are ‘of a time’ for many. You read Bukowski between college and your first real job when you thought that maybe the bums life might be the right life for you. He followed through and continued drinking and writing up until his death of luekemia in 1996.

Find his books, they’re great and fun. But first look at his face – it tells the whole story.
