Author Biography - Christopher Makos

Christopher Makos was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and grew up in California before moving to Paris to study architecture and, later, to work as an apprentice to Man Ray. Since the early 1970s, Makos has developed a boldly graphic style of photojournalism, documenting the physical form as a signature appearing in all his work. During the 1980s, he was a seminal figure in the New York art scene, where he was responsible for introducing the work of both Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring to Andy Warhol. It was Warhol who called Makos "the most modern photographer in America." His photographs have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums internationally, with works shown at the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Makos' images have appeared in countless magazines and newspapers worldwide, including "Interview," "Rolling Stone," "House & Garden," "New York Magazine," "Esquire," "Genre," and "People." He is the author of several important books including his most recent, "Equipose" (Glitterati, 2005) and "Exhibitionism" (Glitterati, 2004). Makos lives in New York.
