Description

Created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book reveals hundreds of the artist’s instant pictures, many seen here for the first time. From self-portraits to still lives, anonymous nudes to New York high society, from Cabbage Patch dolls to portraits of Mick Jagger and Debbie Harry, these impromptu images offer a unique record of the Pop Art maestro’s world.


“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 Warhol’s entourage and high life, landscapes, and still lifes from Cabbage Patch dolls to the iconic soup cans. Often raw and impromptu, the Polaroids document Warhol’s era like Instagram captures TASCHEN'S own, offering a unique record of the life, world, and vision behind the Pop Art maestro and modernist giant.
