Andy Warhol Week

6

This week, the Lomography Magazine paid tribute to the Prince of Pop Art, Andy Warhol. Check out all our feature articles on the artist as well as some Warhol-inspired Lomographs from the community!

“I never read, I just look at pictures.” Andy Warhol with his Konica C35 and Polaroid

Today, we remember the passing of American artist, Andy Warhol. From his early drawings to his final films, Polaroid portraits and photobooth snaps, Warhol has “influenced”: the modern creative world immensely.

Get a quick art lesson and find out some fun facts about Warhol in the Magazine. Learn about his choice camera (the Minox 35 EL), see his studio (dubbed The Factory), meet his muses, and see some fresh new merchandise bearing Warhol’s marks, such as shirts and watches.

Still can’t get enough? Read more Andy Warhol articles from the Magazine and see more Warhol photos from the Community!

And don’t forget to join Andy Warhol's Soup Can Rumble and Pop Art Portraits Rumble to win some Piggy points!

Most essentially, we’ll leave you with this blunt quote from the artist:

“If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and film and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.”

    A Salute to the Masters: Judo (A Tribute to Sabine Weiss)

    This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

    Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
