William Burroughs’s photographs offer real insight into his written work. Lynch’s and Warhol’s images pale by comparison.
“A picture just means I know where I was every minute,” Andy Warholonce said. “That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.” In this instinct, Warhol was, as always, ahead of the game. One senses that he would have been very much at home in today’s digitally driven, relentlessly mediated world where diaristic photography – the recording of the everyday – is a predominant form.
