Long-Lost Andy Warhol Photos Finally Unveiled in New Book

Factory Boy

Photographer Larry Fink resurrects his decades-old shots of the Factory gag in Fink on Warhol.

In the spring of 1966, photographer Larry Fink, working on assignment for New York literary mag East Side Review, followed Andy Warhol and his East Village entourage (including Edie Sedgwick, Ingrid Superstar, and Lou Reed), capturing the cultural climate at the peak of Warhol's Factory era. Fink shot the tribe over the course of five days, and though East Side Review folded before the images could be published, they've been resurrected in Fink on Warhol, a transgressive, nostalgic monograph available this month from Damiani. Fink, who's best known for his 1984 photobook, SocialGraces, says the images collected dust because he, too, was swept up in the movement. "I was high all the time back then," he says, "and I wasn't a careerist. So I didn't think I needed to get them published. Then this year they turn up. And everybody goes, 'Well, look at this shit.' "
