This book opens with an essay by Stephen Petersen on Andy Warhol’s ongoing experimentation with instant photography, made possible by development of the popular Polaroid Big Shot camera and other point and shoot cameras in the 1970s. Petersen also discusses over sixty images including Polaroids and black and white prints, with new research identifying their subjects and dates. This is the catalogue to the exhibition of photographs by Andy Warhol gifted to the University of Delaware by the Warhol Legacy Program.
