An underground classic for years, Walter Pfeiffer started to use photographs as aide-memoirs while working on large-scale photorealist pencil drawings in the early 1970s. But he soon developed a genuine passion for photography and its capacity to capture transient epiphanies of beauty. Inspired by a cast of handsome drifters and stylish women, he established his very own Warhol-inspired “Factory”, and began to carve out his trademark style that testifies to both his desire for timeless beauty and his precise observation of the permutations of fashion and style.
