Our Q&A with Makos covers two plagues, his current exhibition, Keith Haring, Debbie Harry, hot bods and more.

Photographer Christopher Makos has been an influential force in the art world for nearly five decades. He collaborated with his pal Andy Warhol, documented New York scenesters (notably for his two-page column in Interview magazine), published numerous books and continues to exhibit his work across the globe—he’s also involved in the upcoming Netflix docuseries about Warhol and he just released a 2,000-piece jigsaw puzzle for Art X Puzzles, which supports COVID-19 artists relief.

As illustrated by the selection of his work in Dirty, his current gallery show at Daniel Cooney Fine Art in Manhattan, Makos’s photography—even the images from the early 1980s—looks as contemporary as a refreshed Instagram feed.
