Join us for a discussion with artist Christopher Makos and Jessica Beck, Milton Fine curator of art, to celebrate the release of his new book Andy Warhol Modeling Portfolio Makos—a photographic portrait of Andy Warhol’s early modeling career. 

In this new book, Makos offers the public the first and only photographic portrait of Warhol’s early modeling career. Now a luminary in the world of photography himself, Makos offers an incisive portrait of a previously unknown period in Warhol’s life as a model from the unique perspective of his best friend and confidant. 

Copies of the book will be available for purchase in The Warhol Store. Christopher Makos will be available to sign copies following the discussion.

Christopher Makos is a world-renowned American photographer and artist whose work has been in the permanent collections of more than 100 museums and major private collections, including those of Gianni Versace, Malcolm Forbes, and Pedro Almodóvar. His photos have been featured in a variety of publications, such as Interview, Rolling Stone, House & Garden, Connoisseur, New York Magazine, Esquire, Genre, and People.
