Christopher Makos, described by Andy Warhol as "the most modern photographer in America", has a history of seeing trends, fashions and social movements long before most others. His book White Trash, published in 1977, attracted a lot of attention, and included mavens of contemporary culture along with pictures of the emerging punck rock music scene. In 1981, inspired by Rrose Selavy, the famous photographs Man Ray took of Marcel Duchamp in drag in 1921, Christopher Makos created the Altered Images series of Andy Warhol. Until now, the story behind the pictures, including the extent of Andy's participation and enthusiasm, has never really been told. Andy includes every image from these historic photo sessions, along with the inside story of the vibrant collaboration between Warhol and Makos.

Born in 1948, Christopher Makos grew up in California before moving to Paris to study architecture and later to work with Man Ray. Since 1970, he has worked at developing a style of boldly graphic photojournalism. He has become a seminal figure in the contemporary art scene in New York: he introduced artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiar and Keith Haring to Andy Warhol. His photographs have been the subject of numerous exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe and Japan and the ones of Warhol have been regularly at Sotheby's.
