Lost Warhol Images Found In The Meatpacking District - 15 Minutes Forever!

One of the most iconic faces and artists of the 20th century has been rediscovered.  Last week the lost images of pop art icon Andy Warhol were unveiled in the Meatpacking district for the first time in public in an exhibit by Interview Magazine, which Warhol founded in 1969.  "Lost Then Found" will give the public a rare chance to view never-before-seen glimpse of Warhol, circa 1981, when British photographer Steve Wood shot these images.
Wood has spent his life in the world of photography and is one of the chief photographers for English national paper The Daily Express.  These unique images were taken in 1981 when he traveled to France for a film festival visiting La Belle Époque style Royal Hotel within the decadent French town of Deauville. The entire experience took place only two hours with virtually no props, just a backpack and a sunflower. Now classic and iconic. 
You only have a few more days to catch this event located at 345 Meatpacking Building, 345 West 14th Street, between 8th & 9th Ave.  Leading luxury real estate investment and developers, DDG Partners house the exhibit combining a passion for real estate investing with a defined vision for innovative design and lifestyle. Visit them at the link below to learn more about their real estate and creative endeavours. Visit the show to see these rare Warhol photos before they are off to travel internationally. I wonder if Warhol knew his 15 minutes would last forever?
