Bob Colacello’s Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up (rereleased this spring) is widely regarded as the essential look at life inside the Warhol parade. Colacello, the editor of Interview magazine from 1971 to 1983, had incredible access as Warhol’s employee, collaborator, and colleague. It makes for an entertaining, hilarious book, and it’s a multimedia project: Steven Kasher Gallery in Manhattan is currently running an exhibit of Colacello’s beautiful black-and-white photos from Inside Warhol’s World. Here are some of our faves, and if you’re in New York City, you have until May 24 to check out the full range of Colacello’s work.
