Buying Andy Warhol’s Camera
File this one under “Legendary Affectations.”
The Polaroid rescussitators at The Impossible Project have come across a trove of Big Shots, a rare camera produced for just two years in the early 70s.
Mostly, it was a favorite tool of Andy Warhol, who took over 250 exhibition snaps with it–including a particularly nice one of Jack Nicklaus. Andy can also currently be seen wearing one around his neck in Lower Manhattan…so it’s safe to say he was a fan.
The good news: They go on sale at 9am tomorrow morning. The bad news: the Impossible folks were only able to lay their hands on four of the magical devices, so picking one up will leave a serious hole in your watch budget. Decisions, decisions.
