While he may have been surrounded by some of the world’s most famous cultural figures at the time, Stephen Shore was just a fly on the wall at Andy Warhol’s Factory between 1965 and 1967. Shore has now become a renowned photographer, and he’s just released a collection documenting his time there.
Shore was given permission by Warhol himself to take photographs of the artist’s inner circle, and the collaboration started simply: he walked up to Andy Warhol and asked if he could do it. One month later Shore received a phone call: “We’re filming at a restaurant called L’Avventura; do you want to come and take pictures?”
When he was 17, Stephen Shore was the lens to Andy Warhol’s inner circle. His new book showcases the candid moments of his time at The Factory.
See some of the photos below. Factory: Andy Warhol is available now.
