Andy Warhol Polaroids

A collection of polaroids shot by Andy Warhol between 1978 and 1982 was presented at the Paul Kasmin gallery, at a show that ended yesterday. The work is predominantly still life, and while overall, I think it's fairly bland, it's interesting to see the objects that such an iconic artist drew inspiration from.

Some of my favorites are below, and a gallery of 70 images can be viewed online here on the Paul Kasmin Gallery site.

  1. ah, more proof that anything looks awesome when shot on polaroid film.
    i like the way the pictures were displayed at the gallery - with those wide mats - methinks i want something like that at home...

  3. I don't know - those dental ones are pretty cool, although I'm a sucker for anything teeth based. I would love to get a hold of some of those for my vintage medical collection -- or these... http://www.boingboing.net/2008/07/02/array-of-medical-man.html
