One of the last surviving members of New York’s pop-art scene, Billy Name is also one of its pioneers. It was Name (born William Linich in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1940) who in 1964 ‘silverised’ Andy Warhol’s Factory on East 47th Street by covering every inch with either silver foil or spray paint. Name lived there until 1970, becoming resident photographer, and his intimate black-and-white pictures capture history in the making. The man who shot Warhol hundreds of times tells us about some of his best-loved images.
‘Billy Name: The Silver Age’ is at Serena Morton II, 345 Ladbroke Grove, W10 6HA.
