Photographs of Warhol’s Silver Factory and The Velvet Underground by Billy Name

Billy Name was Warhol’s lover, friend and archivist of the Silver Factory. The East 47th Street space was coated in silver foil or silver spray paint (1964) and became a place for talents like The Velvet Underground, Nico Case and Edie Sedgwick to spend their time. Name’s images are now on exhibit in London.

Billy Name: The Silver Age is on show at Serena Morton II Gallery in London from 30 September – 23 October. The book is published by Reel Art Press
