Andy Warhol's Polaroid Portraits

Andy Warhol was best known for his famous silkscreen portraits, which were his bread and butter throughout the 1970s and '80s. Just as iconic as those paintings were his portraits of the bold-faced names of the period. Celebrities, musicians, fashion moguls and athletes of the time stood before the lens of Warhol's Polaroid Big Shot camera.
