“A picture means I know where I was every minute. That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.” — Andy Warhol.
Carrying a Polaroid camera from the late 1950s until his death in 1987, Warhol amassed a huge collection of instant pictures of friends, lovers, patrons, the famous, the obscure, the scenic, the fashionable, and himself. Created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book published by TASCHEN, features hundreds of these instant photos. Collecting a huge selection of portraits of celebrities from Mick Jagger to Yves Saint Laurent, the images document Warhol’s era like Instagram captures our own, offering a unique record of the life, world, and vision behind the Pop Art maestro.
