Collaborating with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book showcases over 150 instant photographs taken by the artist. The collection includes self-portraits, still lifes, anonymous nudes, New York high society, Cabbage Patch dolls, Dolly Parton, Keith Haring, and Audrey Hepburn, providing an exclusive glimpse into the world of the Pop Art master.

Andy Warhol was a prolific recorder of life and its interactions. With a Polaroid camera by his side from the late 1950s until his passing in 1987, he amassed an immense compilation of instantaneous images of acquaintances, romantic partners, supporters, celebrities, unknown faces, picturesque scenery, the trendy, and himself. In partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book showcases over one hundred of these instant photos.

Included in the collection are portraits of Mick Jagger, Alfred Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson, Yves Saint Laurent, Pelé, Debbie Harry, as well as Warhol's inner circle and luxurious lifestyle. Also featured are landscapes and still life images. Captured spontaneously, these Polaroids provide a glimpse into Warhol's era, much like Instagram does for our own time. Serving as a distinct chronicle of Warhol's life, world, and artistic vision, these photographs offer a valuable insight into the iconic Pop Art movement and the legendary modernist himself.
