Christopher Makos was a seminal figure in the 1980s New York art scene, and his photographs have been published in Interview, Rolling Stone, Esquire and New York Magazine. Makos was a close friend and frequent collaborator of Andy Warhol, and is the author of Warhol/Makos In Context, Andy In China and the upcoming Lady Warhol. Clic Gallery East Hampton is presenting the summer show Christopher Makos Polaroids, the show will be on view beginning August 3rd, 2010 at Clic Gallery, 23 Newtown Lane in East Hampton. Makos is also releasing a photo book of the same title which he will be signing at the opening reception, introduction for the book was written by Calvin Klein:

"What I love about Christopher's Polaroids is that they're a potent relic of a very specific era…what a time of incredible energy and excess! People were out all night, Studio 54 was packed, New York was where it was all happening and going out was frenetic, exciting and very, very fun. In many ways, although this may seem like a contradiction, it was also a time of greater innocence, and that's what these pictures capture." – Calvin Klein
