I went to NYC for the launch of Christopher Makos’ just published book Andy Warhol Modeling Portfolio (G Editions). The launch took place at the legendary Strand Bookstore and Vincent Fremont moderated a discussion of the book with Makos. Christopher’s energy is legendary and when Fremont came out of the ‘backstage’ area with Makos to start the program he looked at me and said “I’m already exhausted!” It was a lively program and Christopher signed books for everyone.

Makos introduced me to contemporary photography. He has also had six major one person exhibitions at Govinda Gallery, including Christopher Makos, Photographs (May 1981), War Games (November 1984), Architecture and Design (September 1986), Photographs of Andy Warhol (June 1989), Paintings and Prints (May 1990), and Icons, Portraits, and Man Ray (September 1991). His work was also featured in The Cool and The Crazy: Images of Punk (October 1996)  and the Govinda Gallery Twenty-fifth Anniversary Retrospective Exhibition (September 2000).

Govinda Gallery also had the pleasure of publishing two major projects of Makos’ silkscreens and paintings, Icons and Man Ray.
