This is great example small format pop art by Andy Warhol. Beginning in the 1960s, Warhol carried a camera with him almost constantly, obsessively documenting both his personal life and the daily goings on in his studio, The Factory.
These images, artworks in their own right, also acted as visual references and formed the basis of many of the artists drawings, silkscreens, and paintings. Warhol was sensitively attuned to the potential of the imagein particular, photographyto shape meaning and to both reflect and reaffirm the wider cultural obsessions of the American public.
Warhols fascination with the transience of consumer and popular culture, as well as his concern with appearances and representation, make the polaroid a fitting medium. Notoriously socially awkward, Warhol could use the camera to mediate his interaction with the world, helping him balance between inclusion and exclusion.
These works, developed instantaneously, were born in a particular place and moment in time. Their rarity, coupled with the dwindling production of Polaroid film, capture a crucial period in Warhol's practice and recall a nostalgic moment in the history of photography.
