Andy Warhol Photography

Drag queens, Mick Jagger and urinals… Andy Warhol’s trademark glamour and eccentricity is bought to life in a new exhibition of his photography.

--

Featuring several works to be shown in public for the first time, the collection shows off a glittering cast of Warhol’s famous friends – Arnold Schwarzenegger, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Michael Jackson, to name a few – as well as some of the quirkier characters from his New York party scene. The collection also includes a series of still lifes, self-portraits and nudes.

On the surface, Warhol’s photos capture the look and feel of the mid-century avant-garde. Below it, they are the product of the artist’s obsession with cameras as mechanical producers of art. Go on, stick that up your Instagram.

Andy Warhol Photography from the James Hedges collection, 11th Feb–1st March, open Mon-Fri, 10am-5pm or by appointment, Privatus, 43 Grosvenor Street, Mayfair, London W1K 3HL.
