Mimi Margaux on the balcony of an East Village Beat hangout. New York City, USA, 1959.

Mimi Margaux describes herself as a dancer, actress, model and follower of "la Vie Boheme.In the late 1950s, while at home in New York, Glinn began to shadow the American subculture phenomenon known as the Beats. His images appeared in a 1957 editorial for Esquire and again in 1959 for Holiday magazine, accompanied by Jack Kerouac’s essay, ‘and this is the beat nightlife of new york.’ In 1960, Holiday sent Glinn to chronicle the Beat scene in San Francisco, a project that entailed Glinn’s most extensive use of color film yet.

Burt Glinn became an associate member of Magnum in 1951, along with Eve Arnold and Dennis Stock – the first Americans to join the young photo agency – and a full member in 1954.
