Description

Three classic photographs by Billy Name, taken at Andy Warhol's studio The Factory, including one on the roof of the building. Billy Name was Warhol's studio manager, as well as his "court photographer" and even lived at The Factory. He also came up with the idea of painting the walls of the Factory in silver. He had been fascinated by silver since childhood. He grew up in Poughkeepsie and every second the year the bridge in the city was repainted in silver.

Three press photographs, all credited and captioned on verso, produced in 1997 for his exhibition at The ICA in London. One showing Warhol at the Factory, one with Warhol, Gerard Malanga and others on the roof of The Factory, one of Warhol with The Factory crowd and signed in silver pen by Billy Name.
