My Name Is My Name

Photographs by Billy Name, resident photographer of the Factory from 1963 to 1970: (Left) Edie Sedgwick during her 1965 screen test at Andy Warhol's Silver Factory; (Right) Andy Warhol with, clockwise from top, Mary Woronov, Nico and International Velvet, in 1966. Billy Name's archive of negatives has tragically gone missing, the result of a dispute with his former agent. Here's hoping that the article in last Friday's New York Times helps to expose and correct the situation.

Visit Billy Name's website for more images and info.
