Karen Bystedt


In 1982, Karen Bystedt, then a bold 19-year-old art student, cold-called Andy Warhol's Factory and asked if she could photograph him. Surprisingly, the famous Pop artist accepted. The bulk of Bystedt's negatives and contact sheets from this shoot sat in storage for 30 years, until she rediscovered them in 2013 and introduced them to the world in a series titled “The Lost Warhols” (2013). A resurrection of sorts, the square-format photographs get their potency from the way they seem to bring Warhol (who died in 1987) back to life. Characteristically nonplussed yet intense, he sits in a director's chair before a blank television screen. Dressed in a woolen blazer and tie, he waves a small American flag. Following the release of this series, Bystedt has collaborated with other artists such as Peter Tunney, Speedy Graphito, and Tonia Calderon on other projects.
