Instant Andy

Before there was Instagram, there was 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.

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 our own, offering a unique record of the life, world, and vision behind the Pop Art maestro and modernist giant.

Une belle page d'histoire

Des belles photos témoignant d'une époque charnière créatrice !
On a même l'impression que certaines étaient prises sur le vif !

La qualité Taschen

Damien, October 27, 2021
C'est un classement mérité que de classer les livres Taschen dans la catégorie "Beaux livres". Celui-ci ne fait pas exception. Cette succession de polaroid du maître Warhol nous ouvre la porte sur d'autres époques, fragments d'instants couchés sur papier glacé.

Perfect product and great customer service
