Between 1982 and 1987 Andy Warhol created 503 works composed of black-and-white photographic prints stitched together with thread. Indebted to his earlier silkscreen paintings, these works were also the result of lifelong photographic exploration and a prolific decade when the artist shot over 124,000 frames. In an effort to interpret Warhol's enigmatic photographic series, this study contextualizes them within the history of photography and the art world of the 1980s. William Ganis demonstrates how Warhol manipulates the tenets of modern art photography to create ambiguity in the perception of the images.Read more
