about

This breathtaking tome is the definitive and comprehensive collection of Billy Name’s black-and-white photographs from Warhol’s Factory. Name’s photographs from this period (1964–68) are one of the most important photographic documents of any single artist in history. Name lived in a tiny closet at the Factory. He was responsible for the legendary “silverizing” of the space using aluminum paint and foil to complete the instillation.

Not only do Name's gritty, over-exposed shots give an insider's perspective on Warhol, but they document an iconic era in American art history.
