A collection of more than 150 instant pictures by the artist ranging from self-portraits to still lives, anonymous nudes to New York high society

Andy Warhol was a relentless chronicler of life and its encounters. 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. Created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book features more than hundred of these instant photos.

Portraits of celebrities such as Mick JaggerAlfred HitchcockJack NicholsonYves Saint LaurentPeléDebbie Harry are included alongside images of Warhol’s entourage and high life, landscapes, and still lifes. Often raw and impromptu, the Polaroids document Warhol’s era like Instagram captures our own, offering a unique record of the life, world, and vision behind the Pop Art maestro and modernist giant.
