Instant Andy: Before there was Instagram, there was
“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 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 hundreds of these instant photos, many of
them never seen before.
Portraits of celebrities such as Mick Jagger, Alfred
Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson, Yves Saint Laurent, 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.
