We can now confirm that the man behind the lens for our Warhol in China 1982 May Issue cover story, Christopher Makos (pictured above with Warhol in Tiananmen Square on that 82 trip), the man who Andy Warhol described as "the most modern photographer in America," is coming to Shanghai in June, showing for the first time in China photographs of Andy Warhol in New York, along with his iconic images from the historic Warhol in Beijing series.
The exhibition will take place at the Wine Residence at 41 Hengshan Lu from June 14-18, while there will also be a talk in Glamour Bar on Wednesday June 12 at 5pm. Makos was not only close friends with Warhol, but has been at the heart of the New York scene since the 70s, and will display photos of John Lennon, David Bowie, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger and many more, including this quite incredible shot of O.J. Simpson. Watch this space.
