Andy Warhol: Polaroids

Self Portrait Andy Warhol... Self-Portrait (1977, Polacolor Type 108 photography). From the exhibition Andy Warhol: Polaroids at Galerie Priska Pasquer in Cologne. "...Around 1970 the Polaroid camera became the ideal tool for Warhol for to depict the people of the worlds of art, music, fashion, media and celebrity. The Polaroid photographs became the base for his portrait paintings; moreover they became a distinct body of work within Warhol’s wide array of media he used for creating art. Additionally the Polaroid camera was also a tool for Andy Warhol for to relate to other people while being able to keep the distance behind the camera."
