Book Club: Andy Warhol Polaroids

Unwind with this fascinating collection of Andy Warhol pictures

Edited by Richard B. Woodward and Reuel Golden $200, published by Taschen and distributed by New Holland. Available at Novel and other good bookstores.

The ultimate party photographer was Andy Warhol, who captured his colourful life on a trusty Polaroid camera. This fascinating new book from Taschen relates Andy’s instant pictures to today’s Instagram obsession, “oscillating between spontaneity, staging, representation, and the connection between photography and fame”. Expect photos of famous friends (Debbie Harry, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, Dolly Parton), landscapes, artworks and more. “A picture means I know where I was every minute,” Andy explained. “That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.”
