In 2010, Kevin System and Mike Krieger came together and created the world famous photo sharing app, Instagram. People post pictures to show their followers what they're doing and where they are. But before there was Instagram, there was Andy Warhol and his polaroids. Warhol once said “A picture means I know where I was every minute. That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.” The book was created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol foundation and showcases many of Warhol's instant pictures. Many of the pictures were showcased to the world for the first time with the release of the book. The huge collection of pictures included everything from celebrities to the obscure, the scenic to fashionable, and his lovers to friends. Not to mention, it looks amazing on a coffee table.
