Makos has a history of recognizing trends, fashions, and social movements long before most others. His highly acclaimed book, White Trash, caught Warhols eye and the two men began a friendship based on an ever-flowing exchange of ideas, inspiration and technical knowledge. Inspired by the famous photographs, Rrose Selavy, that Man Ray took of Marcel Duchamp in drag in 1921, Makos created a fresh and unique concept. Mixing elements of style, traditional gender cues, and mysterious sexuality, Makos went beyond portrait and photojournalism, giving a glimpse into the future of blurred gender and alternative drag. Evocative, intimate and campy, Andy is a true reflection of the uniquely creative and fertile collaboration between Makos and Warhol.
