Brigid Berlin was Andy Warhol's best friend and one of the most prominent and colourful members of his Factory in the 1960s and 1970s.
Her legendary personal collection of Polaroids, an intimate, beautiful, artistic, outrageous insight into this iconic period, are collected in the
@reelartpressbook BRIGID BERLIN POLAROIDS. Brigid knew everyone and her lens captured them all: celebrities, Superstars, artists, herself, and, of course, Warhol.
“In recording life, she captured our times. By myopically depicting her own transgressions and self- indulgences, she has prophetically reflected the narcissism and exhibitionism, the craving for fame and confusing of fame and infamy that have become the staples of American popular culture.”, said Bob Colacello, editor of Warhol’s (recently folded)
Interview magazine, and features writer for Vanity Fair.
“Berlin introduced Warhol to the Polaroid camera and the tape recorder, two tools with which he would become synonymous.” INTERVIEW MAGAZINE
