Andy Warhol Unique Silver Gelatin Print Photobooth Strip
The Andy Warhol Photo Booth Strip is an example of the Artist's earliest Photography, a medium that increasingly dominated Andy Warhol's Art, often a prerequisite to the creation of his important Portrait Paintings. During the early 60's the Artist created a large body of Silver Gelatin Photobooth Strips.
The Photo Booth represented a quintessentially modern intersection of mass entertainment and private self-contemplation. In Andy Warhol's Photo Booth Strips, the Sitter could easily adopt a succession of different roles, each captured in a single frame; the resulting strip of four poses resembled a snippet of film footage.
In this Unique Silver Gelatin Photobooth Strip titled Andy Warhol, Philip Fagan and Gerard Malanga, 1964, Warhol poses with his then boyfriend Phillip Fagan and Gerard Malanga, his longtime business manager. Wearing sunglasses, Warhol takes on the person of a Movie Star, and now with time, is the seen as the ultimate 20th Century Art icon.
