Elizabeth Taylor and David Hockney

Sylvester Stallone and OJ Simpson from 1977

Warhol's 'self-portrait' in drag and Mick Jagger, photographed in 1977

Boy George from 1985 and Diana Ross pictured in 1981

It's quite fitting that on the week of Andy Warhol's 26th anniversary of his death, I attended an exhibition of rare Warhol Polaroids at Privatus Gallery in Mayfair. Taken from a private collection of never publicly seen photos, many of the pictures have been donated by art collector James Hedges. The exhibition features a mixture of still-life shots, travel photography and photobooth strips, in addition to iconic candid images of Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, David Hockney and Boy George. It's a very intimate collection in a generous space. Andy Warhol Photography opened at Privatus on 11 February and runs until March 1. To view this exhibition you have to book an appointment prior to your visit.
