‘Andy had just made his monumentally boring 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.

David McCabe’s chosen viewpoint accentuates his subjects, most notably the image with the Empire State Building in the background. The building itself stands as both an icon (or “celebrity”) of New York and the ‘star’ of Warhol’s 1964 silent film Empire, an eight-hour-long film of the structure shot with a stationary camera from the forty-fourth floor of the Time-Life building. In the high-angle shot with Sedgwick, Warhol and his companion reach flamboyantly into the sky, nearly touching the spire of the building to their left.
