If you’re looking for someone to blame for the existence of hipsters, look no further than the beatniks. The iconic fifties youth group, made famous by one of their earliest practitioners Jack Kerouac, are clearly the template in look and attitude for many a modern-day Williamsburg trendy judging by the images in Larry Fink’s recently reissued book ‘The Beats’.

Amazing to think that these images were taken over 50 years ago but still feel strangely contemporary.
