From the publisher: "Gerard Malanga made his reputation as co-founder of Andy Warhol's Factory. His career as a photographer began there between 1964 and 1966, when he and Warhol made screen tests of 300 people. Later on, he [made captivating] portraits of Iggy Pop, Robert Mapplethorpe, Tennessee Williams, Alice Cooper, Mick Jagger, Lou Reed and William S. Burroughs. These photographs take the viewer back to Pop Culture and the Beat Generation. Still later, throughout the eighties and well into the nineties, Malanga gave the reader a taste of the magical relation of femininity and charm as embodied in his nudes."
