Warhol On the Other Side of the Camera

Andy Warhol might have captured beatnik It Girl Edie Sedgwick on film but who took pictures of Andy Warhol? His name is Christopher Makos. I had the chance to meet with this talented photographer at his studio for an interview some years ago; he was a close friend to Andy Warhol and I feel he had captured his friend from a deeply respectful, kindhearted perspective. We (the crew) were able to see private videos of the two of them together--these were incredibly sad and moving to see. Check out the online exhibition at www.makostudio.com.
