  • In 1970, British photojournalist Sally Soames (1937-2019) photographed Andy Warhol through a gauze curtain at the Factory. In response to his uneasiness before the camera, she instinctively placed a barrier between him and the camera, softening his features. Prominently bearing Warhol’s signature in red ink across the lower right corner, this photograph speaks for itself as a candid portrait of the 20th-century icon.
