Life in the Factory: The teenage photographer who captured Andy Warhol's 1960s studio

23 November 2016

As Manchester's Whitworth gallery welcomes a new Andy Warhol exhibition, we take a rare glimpse into his Factory studio as captured by Stephen Shore - a young photographer who was set to become a protégé of the legendary pop artist.

At 17 years old Stephen Shore dropped out of school and started visiting Andy Warhol’s studio in Manhattan.

The photographs he would go on to take coincided with Warhol's emergence as a prominent artist and would capture the vibrant creativity of the New York art scene in the late 1960s.

The young photographer spent nearly every day taking pictures of the legendary Factory studio's diverse cast of characters
The young photographer spent nearly every day taking pictures of the legendary Factory studio's diverse cast of characters, which included Lou Reed, Yoko Ono, Edie Sedgwick and Warhol himself.
In the new book, Factory: Andy Warhol, Shore has released many previously unpublished photographs and contact sheets from his time in the studio during the period of 1965 to 1967.
Shore, who sold his first photograph when he was just 14 years old, gained exceptional access to Warhol’s creative world and documented the social and working life of the Factory.
In one famous photograph, Velvet Underground vocalist Nico is seen sitting at dining table in Shore's parents house following a party at the Factory.
"My parents were either very tolerant or had simply given up hope for me," writes Shore. "But earlier they would often - my mother particularly - socialise. She became friendly with Nico and once spent an evening with her. She told my mother her life story in our dining room."
In turn, the young photographer discovered the artist in himself, with an impressive career that has now spanned over six decades.
The celebration of Warhol's creative output continues with a new exhibition at The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester.
Artist Rooms: Andy Warhol aims to examine the themes of "death, politics and selfies" in over 232 of his works and runs into early 2017.
Factory: Andy Warhol by Stephen Shore is published by Phaidon.
