Interesting Photos of Andy Warhol with Edie Sedgwick and Chuck Wein in New York City in 1965

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Burton Samuel Glinn (1925 – 2008) was an American professional photographer who worked with Magnum Photos, and became one of Magnum's great corporate and advertising photographers. He covered the Sinai War, the US Marine invasion of Lebanon, and revolutionary leader Fidel Castro's entrance into Havana, Cuba.

Glinn's photos show such things as the social scene of the rich, the dirtyness of politics. He also photographed the stars of the 1950s and '60s with verve and flair such as Andy Warhol and Helen Frankenthaler. Capturing a pivotal moment in history, or a fleetingly perfect composition, some Magnum photographs become icons.

Glinn staged these interesting images in which the infamous artists appeared out of a manhole with Andy Warhol holding his camera, Edie Sedgwick, alongside her manager Chuck Wein.
