This is the definitive and comprehensive collection of Billy Name’s black and white photographs from Warhol’s Factory. Billy’s photographs from this period (1964-68) are one of the most important photographic documents of any single artist in history. Billy lived in a tiny closet at the Factory. He was responsible for the legendary ‘silverizing’ of the space using aluminium paint and aluminium foil to complete the installation. When Andy gave Billy a Pentax Honeywell 35mm camera, he took on the role of resident photographer and archivist.
"‘Billy’s photos were the only thing that ever came close to capturing the feel of the 1960s Silver Factory.’" -Andy Warhol
