Stunning Portraits of Edie Sedgwick Photographed by Nat Finkelstein, 1966

Nat Finkelstein was the house photographer for the Factory from 1964 to 1967, he created spontaneous portraits not only of Factory regulars like Sedgwick and Gerard Malanga but also of the artists and celebrities who drifted in and out of the Warhol orbit.

Finkelstein was on hand when Warhol presented Bob Dylan with one of his Elvis “Flaming Star” silk-screen portraits, and took pictures of Allen Ginsberg and Salvador Dalí. He captured Sedgwick and Nico, of the Velvet Underground, at their most glamorous, and photographed the first Velvet Underground performances and recording sessions.

Here are some stunning portraits of Edie Sedgwick taken by Nat Finkelstein in Warhol’s Factory in 1966:
