About the Christopher Makos Warhol A Personal Photographic Memoir

Description

Andy Warhol called Christopher Makos "the most modern photographer in America." He also called him one of his closest friends for the last fourteen years of his life. Christopher Makos shares with us that friendship, and shows us, close up, an eye-opening portrait of Andy Warhol. Here are 150 revealing black-and-white photographs - filled with Warhol, his world, and his celebrity friends: Debbie Harry, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, Georgia O'Keeffe, Bill Murray, Liza Minnelli, and many others. Here is Warhol relaxed... mugging for the camera... in drag.... and in exciting, exotic places all over the world - from Beijing's Forbidden City to "The Factory," his famous lower-Manhattan studio. In addition to the stark beauty of Makos's photographs, his informal, intimate commentary creates a remarkably complete and complex portrait of the enigmatic artist who gave the Campbell's soup can its fifteen minutes of fame - and more.
