Andy Warhol’s Polaroids
The Campbell’s soup can and colorful repetitive images of Marilyn Monroe might be the first impressions that creep up in your mind when you hear the name Andy Warhol.
The pop artist most notably know for his printmaking and painting utilized a camera quite often for his work.
With a single push of a Polaroid button, Warhol created a large amount of stripped down portraits of recognizable actors/actresses/writers/athletes of that time. Starting with the instant camera, a white wall and an in camera light source, the photographs have an almost eerie look and feel and might be read as some of the subjects having forced looks. How ever you read it, it is still interesting to look back at the work of one of the most popular and influential artist of his time.
