Previously Unseen Andy Warhol's Polaroids from 1970's - 1980's

These awesome photos were taken between 1970 and 1987. The shots, of people from various walks of life, are standard in composition. Warhol saw them as a contemporary version of the traditional tin type or cabinet card. And, the idea is remarkably successful.

'Caroline, Princess of Monaco', 1983

'Unidentified girl (Blue t-shirt with Teddy Bear)', 9/1979

'R.C. Gorman', 1979
