Synopsis: Instant Andy: Before there was Instagram, there was Warhol   ?A picture means I know where I was every minute. That's why I take pictures. It's a visual diary.? - Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was a relentless chronicler of his personal and profesional life. Carrying a Polaroid camera from the late 1950s until his death in 1987, he amassed a huge collection of instant pictures of  friends, lovers, patrons, the famous, the obscure, the scenic, the fashionable, and  himself. Often impromptu, Warhol?s Polaroids document his era like Instagram captures our own, oscillating between  spontaneity, staging, representation, and  the connection between photography and fame.

This collection spans the full range of Warhol's instant pictures, from portraits of celebrities such as  Mick Jagger, Alfred Hitchcock, Dennis Hopper, David Hockney, Yves Saint Laurent, Jack Nicholson, O.J Simpson, Pelé, Debbie Harry to  landscapes, and  still lifes of the iconic soup cans. An indispensable record of Warhol's life, world, and vision, the book also features an Andy Warhol timeline, biographies of the sitters, and additional photographs by Chris Stein and Gerard Malanga.   Text in English, French, and German

Product Description: Instant Andy: Before there was Instagram, there was Warhol   ?A picture means I know where I was every minute. That's why I take pictures. It's a visual diary.? - Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol was a relentless chronicler of life and its encounters. Carrying a Polaroid camera nearly everywhere he went from the late 1960s until his death in 1987, he 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 features hundreds of these instant photos, most of them never seen before. Portraits of celebrities such as Mick Jagger, Alfred Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson, O.J Simpson, Pelé, Debbie Harry are included alongside images of his entourage and high life, landscapes, and still lifes from Cabbage Patch dolls to the iconic soup cans. Often raw and impromptu, Warhol?s Polaroids document his era like Instagram captures our own. From the unofficial court photographer of New York high and low society, this collection is an indispensable record of Warhol's life, world, and vision.   Text in English, French, and German
