While he may have been surrounded by some of the world’s most famous cultural figures at the time, Stephen Shore was just a fly on the wall at Andy Warhol’s Factory between 1965 and 1967. Shore has now become a renowned photographer, and he’s just released a collection documenting his time there.

Shore was given permission by Warhol himself to take photographs of the artist’s inner circle, and the collaboration started simply: he walked up to Andy Warhol and asked if he could do it. One month later Shore received a phone call: “We’re filming at a restaurant called L’Avventura; do you want to come and take pictures?”
