RED BOOKS: ANDY WARHOL
The Polaroid camera combined two of Andy Warhol's obsessions -- the disposible nature of modern consumerism and the photograph as a ready-made. He was an inveterate and relentless user of Polaroid cameras and during the 1970s he made thousands of instant photographs. The near-instant nature of the Polaroid process meant that the photographs could be passed around, admired, sometimes written on moments after the event had been captured. It was a useful tool for a somewhat shy character, one that encouraged interaction and collaboration."
I have this box set, it's awesome.
