Andy Warhol´s polaroids

It is exactly 25 years ago that, the man, the myth, the legend "for more than 15 minutes", died unexpectedly in New York after a routine operation of his gallbladder. Moderna Museet/Malmö is now showing some of his polaroids in an exhibition called "Ladies and Gentlemen". In this show, also featuring other stars like Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Samuel Fosso, Tracey Moffatt, Moderna focuses on Warhols obsession with celebrities, from movie stars, rock stars, industrialists, Factory-hang arounds to Studio 54 wannabies ... Warhol published three books on photography [one posthumously], Andy Warhols´s Exposure [1979], America [1985] and Andy Warhol´s Party Book [1988]. Maybe not the best photobooks I have .. if you need a Warhool book go for the fantastic "Index".
