The images of the famous: Keith Haring, Grace Jones, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Byrne, Mick Jagger, Andre the Giant, Paloma Picasso, William S. Burroughs, mingle with downtown club kids, and Warhol's snapshots of regular Americans inhabiting their daily lives. He created his own universe and became its star'. David Cronenberg, "The Guardian"'He understood our obsession with celebrity culture better and sooner than anyone else. Alison Jackson, "Sunday Telegraph" Andy Warhol carried a camera with him everywhere he went and, taken from ten years of extraordinary shots, his America aspires to the strange beauty and staggering contradictions of the country itself. Exploring his greatest obsessions - including image and celebrity - he photographs wrestlers and politicians, the beautiful wealthy and the disenfranchised poor, Capote with the fresh scars of a facelift and Madonna hiding beneath a brunette bob. He writes about the country he loves, wishing he had died when he was shot, commercialism, fame and beauty. An America without Warhol is almost as inconceivable as Warhol without America, and this touching, witty tribute is the great artist of the superficial at his most deeply personal.
