Christopher Makos Polaroids 'Signed in Original Sealed Wrap'



Collection of 180 color Polaroids shot by the man "who first handed [Andy] Warhol a camera and [taught] him how to use it." Published in conjunction with a show at Milan's Photology Gallery held in November, 2009. Makos "was a seminal figure in the 1980's New York art scene, and his photographs have been published in Interview, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and New York Magazine...[he] was a close friend and frequent collaborator of Andy Warhol... [the present collection features] Polaroids snapped by Makos in the late 70's to the early 80's. The beautiful, dreamy, colorful shots--of friends and lovers, of interesting still lives, and even celebrities like Debbie Harry, John Kennedy, Jr. and Warhol himself-- are the perfect reminder of the recklessly happy spirit of the time." Hardcover 8vo, 296 pages. As new, sealed in publisher's photo illustrated silver wrap envelope. Signed by Makos along the edge of the silver wrap. Some rubbing and creasing to the publisher's wrap.
