Andy Warhol. Polaroids 1958-1987

Andy Warhol always carried polaroids that he used to photograph friends, lovers, celebrities, strangers, landscapes, fashionistas and himself.



Andy Warhol was a relentless chronicler of life and its encounters. From the late 1950s until his death in 1987, he carried a Polaroid camera with him and amassed a huge collection of instant photographs of friends, lovers, clients, celebrities, strangers, landscapes, fashionistas and himself. Created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book contains hundreds of these photographs.

Portraits of celebrities such as Mick Jagger, Alfred Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson, Yves Saint Laurent, Pelé, Debbie Harry are included alongside images of Warhol's entourage and high life, landscapes and still lifes from Cabbage Patch dolls to the iconic soup cans. The Polaroids, often raw and improvised, document Warhol's era as Instagram captures ours, offering a unique account of the life, world and vision behind the Pop Art maestro and modernist giant.
