lost warhol polaroids resurface in a nyc gallery show.

by liza darwin

Believe it or not, Factory Girl magic still happens today: an anonymous individual recently came across 150 Andy Warhol polaroids that were presumed lost until now.

In addition to Warhol himself, the snaps feature cameos from famous faces like Farrah Fawcett, Keith Haring, and Elizabeth Taylor and were taken just after the artist discovered the Polaroid camera. Although they were the epitome of instant gratification (which he was obsessed with, clearly...), that's not all- these saturated images were the inspiration behind Warhol's signature silk prints.

If you want to see them for yourself, New York's Danziger Projects has snatched up 23 of the rare images for a new gallery show this month. For now, click our favorite finds below and see why the impossible project isn't so impossible, after all.
