About the Author
Christopher Makos was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, grew up in California, and moved to New York City after high school. He studied architecture in Paris and briefly worked as an apprentice to Man Ray. During the 1970's and 80's, Makos traveled frequently with good friend and frequent portrait subject Andy Warhol, and Makos' works are widely viewed as that era's most complete and compelling photographic record of Warhol and his milieu. Makos' works have been exhibited at galleries and museums world-wide, including The Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, The Tate Modern, London, The National Gallery, Washington, D.C., The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and The Brooklyn Museum, New York. His work is in the permanent collections of The IVAM in Valencia (Spain), The Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, and the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. His pictures have appeared in magazines and newspapers including Paris Match and the WSJ International Edition. He is the author of numerous books, including White Trash, (1976/2014), Warhol/Makos In Context (2007), Andy Warhol China 1982 (2007), Christopher Makos Polaroids (2009) and most recently, Everything: The Black and White Monograph (2014).
