Andy Warhol Polaroids 1971-1986
by Andy Warhol
Publisher's Description
The "ambivalent emotional register" of Warhol's work is distinctively prevalent in this "album" of his polaroid celebrity portraits. "Like one of his silkscreen portraits, a Warhol Polaroid simultaneously elevates and deflates its subject, whose individual ego becomes the vanishing point in a manufactured image of celebrity. In addition to Warhol's pantheon of 70s and 80s stars--Liza Minelli, Mohammed Ali, Truman Capote, Diana Vreeland, and Howdy Doody--the collection includes Warhol's self-portraits in drag, in which, despite our best attempts to consume him, he remains, finally, inscrutable."--the publisher.
