“I don’t think Studio 54 is like pagan Rome. I think it’s like junior high school.” This collection of Warhol’s photographs includes wonderful sections on President Jimmy Carter, Truman Capote, Dali, Studio 54 and numerous celebrities, artists and musicians. The impromptu artistry of Exposures and other photobooks, expressing “the freewheeling existential exuberance and energy of Warhol… [became] a primary inspiration for the Japanese photobook” (Parr & Badger II:144).
