Andy Warhol Photography Archive Contact Sheets: 1976 - 1987

About the collection

From 1976 until his death in 1987, Andy Warhol (U.S.A., 1928-1987) was never without his camera. He snapped photos at discos, dinner parties, flea markets, and wrestling matches. Friends, boyfriends, business associates, socialites, celebrities, passers by: all captured Warhol's attention—at least for the moment he looked through the lens. In 2014, after a by-invitation-only competition among a selection of leading American art museums, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts designated the Cantor Arts Center as the permanent home of Warhol’s archive of over 3600 contact sheets. The Cantor is partnering with the Stanford University Libraries out of concern for preservation and discoverability for the digitized images of this archive.
