The Silver Age. Black and White Photographs from Andy Warhol's Factory

Серия: "-"

Billy Name invented the term, Factory Foto. He was the first and he was the last Factory photographer. Period. Gerard Malanga This breathtaking tome is the definitive and comprehensive collection of Billy Name's black and white photographs from Warhol's Factory. Billy's photographs from this period (1964-68) are one of the most important photographic documents of any single artist in history. Billy lived in a tiny closet at the Factory. He was responsible for the legendary silverizing of the space using aluminium paint and aluminium foil to complete the instillation. When Andy gave Billy a Pentax Honeywell 35mm camera, he took on the role of resident photographer and archivist. This visual essay, produced in collaboration with Billy, offers an extensive trip through Warhol's world. Billy photographed the day-to-day happenings at The Factory with Andy, including visits from Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Nico, Edie Sedgwick, Ivy Nicholson and Bob Dylan; filming Screen Tests and features like Chelsea Girls, Vinyl and My Hustler. This volume is not-to-be-missed.
