Andy Warhol holds a vinyl record in front of the mirror with his pants down

1

This is such a perplexing at the same time hilarious photo of the radically eccentric, infamous artist!

Photo via chiclepopdiary

In tribute to our birthday boy Andy Warhol, we present to you this unusually unflattering photo of the Prince of Pop Art with his pants down.

Can you read whose record that is? Can you identify who that guy is in the mirror? Can you figure out why Mr. Warhol’s trousers are down, and why he chose to have this photograph taken, even while his underwear is torn right in the middle?

    Summer Hot Spots: Escaping the Heat at Cameron Highlands

    It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Mediterranean Sea (A Tribute to Édouard Boubat)

    This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
