Pic of the Day: Rare Polaroids of Basquiat


In honor of what would have been Basquiat’s 50th birthday this year, Vanity Fair has posted a slideshow of images from the collection of Kelle Inman, Basquiat’s last girlfriend. The pair met when she was working as waitress at Nell’s; two days later, they were living together. The photo above is a double Polaroid with a triple-profile portrait of the artist, taken in Basquiat’s studio in 1987. Check out more photos here, courtesy of Los Angeles’ LeadApron gallery.
