American photographer James Friedman has been bouncing round the blogosphere the last couple of weeks with attention lavished on his Interior Design series, showcasing the colourful cross-sections of cut-open golf balls.
But a closer root around his portfolio reveals this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his host of interesting projects. Amid the treasures I stumbled across Almost Never Before Seen Portraits of Remarkable Peoplewhich features Tina Turner, Woody Hayes and most intriguingly of all Andy Warhol. Taken in Columbus, Ohio in 1978, the backdrop appears to be the opening of the artist’s show and he is captured behaving by turns mischievously, awkwardly and coquettishly. It fees very personal (to the point of slightly invasive) as James takes us up close and personal with one of the last century’s most defining, and divisive, cultural figures.
