‘Andy had been a commercial artist, and a lot of people still thought of him as the guy who did the window displays in Bergdorf Goodman. In order to establish himself as a serious artist, he had himself photographed with as many famous artists as possible. When he spent the weekend with the architect Philip Johnson, he asked me to turn up on the Sunday to take some pictures. If he was going to Rauschenberg’s place to play Monopoly, he’d ask me to come. When he went to meet Salvador Dalí at the St Regis Hotel, I was there. Andy was hugely impressed by Dalí. Dalí was wearing a black fright wig, and Andy, who was losing his hair, must have thought, if he can do it so can I. Shortly after that he started wearing wigs himself.’ David McCabe

'In 1964, David McCabe landed the commission of a lifetime, he just didn’t know it yet. A then-relatively unknown artist and illustrator named Andy Warhol was looking for a photographer he felt comfortable with to follow him for a year. The job fell to 24-year-old McCabe, an ex-arts student and photographer from Leicester, England. McCabe had recently moved to New York City at the encouragement – and funding – of his employer back home. McCabe’s own studio was a short walk from the now-infamous Silver Factory at 231 E 47th Street. Warhol, who had possibly seen the amateur’s images in magazines such as LIFE and Mademoiselle, liked his style – but McCabe was asking: ‘Who is Andy Warhol?’ Ashleigh Kane for Dazed
