As part of the “Altered Image” series, Christopher Makos photographed Andy Warhol in a variety of disguises and costumes. Drawing on the work of Marcel Duchamp and Cindy Sherman, Makos used wigs and makeup as a way to toy with Warhol’s identity. Makos says, “Halston at the time asked us, ‘Do you want to borrow a dress?’ And we didn't want to borrow a dress. We weren't trying to do drag photos. It was just about altering Andy's face.”
