Gerard Malanga: Screen Tests, Portraits, Nudes 1964-1996Gerard Malanga: Screen Tests, Portraits, Nudes 1964-1996 by Ben Maddow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Any book that has a portrait of my Dad in it is ok with me. But lets say it didn't have that portrait, this is still a remarkable (and inexpensive) volume of Gerard Malanga's remarkable photo portraits. Gerard, a poet as well as Andy Warhol's right-hand man during the golden Factory years has a great eye and this book mixes with the pop star (including the famous Iggy nude portrait) and various poets/writers as well as artists. A must-own really!
