‘Andy had just made his movie featuring the Empire State building. It just so happened at the time that my studio was next door. He asked me if I could somehow shoot him with the building. We went to the roof of my studio, I stuck him on the ladder with Edie and the Empire State building never moved an inch.’ David McCabe

In early 1964, shortly after acquiring the studio space at 231 East Forty-Seventh Street in New York that would become known as the Factory, Pop artist Andy Warhol commissioned British fashion photographer David McCabe to document his life for one year. Although McCabe was the photographer, the year-long project is properly understood as a Warhol production. The idea of documenting his life and the many events associated with the Factory was in keeping with Warhol’s virtual obsession with capturing all aspects of his life for storage: taking Polaroids at parties, tape-recording hundreds of hours of telephone conversations, and saving items that passed through his hands in ‘time capsules.’ Text by Wendy Koenig
