Christopher Makos (born 1948, in Lowell, Massachusetts) is an American photographer and artist. He apprenticed with photographer Man Ray in Paris and collaborated with Andy Warhol, whom he showed how to use his first camera.
Since the early 1970s he has worked at developing a style of boldly graphic photojournalism.
His photographs have been the subject of numerous exhibitions both in galleries and museums throughout the United States, Europe and Japan and have appeared in countless magazines and newspapers worldwide. He has been a seminal figure in the contemporary art scene in New York.
He is responsible for introducing the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring to Andy Warhol. His book, Warhol: A Photographic Memoir, published by New American Library, chronicles his close friendship and extensive travels with Andy Warhol.
Makos' photographs have been published in Interview, Rolling Stone, House & Garden, Connoisseur, New York Magazine, Esquire, Genre and People, among others. His portrait of Warhol wrapped in a flag was featured on the front cover of the Spring 1990 issue of the Smithsonian Studies, the academic journal of the Smithsonian Institution. Makos' Icons portfolio is a collection of silkscreen portraits of Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Salvador Dalí, John Lennon and Mick Jagger.
His photographs of Warhol, Haring, Tennessee Williams and others have been auctioned regularly at Sotheby's. Warhol called Makos the "most modern photographer in America".
