Andy Warhol called Christopher Makos "the most modern photographer in America." The man who first introduced Warhol to the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring here presents the photographic remains of their more than 10 years of intimate friendship and frequent collaboration. For the first time ever, all of Warhol's camouflage portraits, taken by Makos under the direct supervision of the artist himself, appear together, in full-page reproductions complete with Warhol's touch-ups and markings. In the photographic portraits that Warhol regarded as genuine self-portraits, he appears dressed up and in drag, wearing colored wigs and make-up, looking melancholic and shameless. Published in collaboration with Edition Bruno Bischofberger, Zurich.
