Jane Holzer and Susan Lloyd host exhibit and book-signing for Internationally Renowned photographer, Baron Christophe von Hohenberg at The Silver Fund on Worth Avenue

Another Planet’ and ‘Andy Warhol-the Day the Factory Died’ Capture a By-gone Era

 Jane Holzer and Susan Lloyd revisited a by-gone era by co-hosting  an exhibit and book-signing by internationally renowned photographer, Baron Christophe von Hohenberg.  The celebration took place on Thursday March 10th at The Silver Fund , an exceptional gallery which has complemented Worth Avenue with treasure troves of exquisite collections of 20th century silver and design.  New York photographer, Patrick McMullan flew to Palm Beach to capture the moment.

Von Hohenberg, who had just returned from an exhibit in Vienna, where he ‘sold out’ his collection, did not expect the immediate success of this last minute show.  Referring to his books as “reliving of celebrated times immortalizing models, artists, designers, musicians, gallerists, and other icons who reigned in New York during the Seventies and Eighties”, von Hohenberg was on hand to sign his two latest books “Another Planet” and “Andy Warhol, the Day the Factory Died”.  Two photographs from von Hohenberg’s ‘Nude with Wookie” series were framed, displayed and sold within the first 20 minutes to a Palm Beach collector.

Over 100 invited guests paid tribute to Von Hohenberg’s unique style of cataloguing popular culture.  Many of who came to find themselves portrayed in his books and return to those moments illuminated by his photography, which has been featured in publications as wide ranging as Interview, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Fortune, German and French Vogue, and German Rolling Stone.

“It was so great to see so many faces and friends after more than twenty and even thirty years!  I relived so many moments and shared so many memories because of this opportunity.   Thank you Jane, Susan and the Silver Fund for this opportunity,” said Baron von Hohenberg.

In addition to Jane Holzer and Susan Lloyd, the eclectic roster of collectors, artists, gallery owners, Broadway producers and members of Royal families included Earle Mack, Terry Allen Kramer, Carlos Morrison, John Loring, Felicia Taylor, Mai Harrison, Fran Weisler, Elizabeth Thompson, Fran Weisler, Countess Diane de la Begassiere, Princess Maria Pia de Bourbon-Parme, Karin Luter, Talbott Maxey, Matthew Eames, Baroness von Oppenheim, Kenneth Walker, Felicia Taylor, Mark Goldschmidt  and Jim Pappas.

The Silver Fund Team

Michael James and Jason Laskey from The Silver Fund spared no expense, inviting popular vocalist Racquel Williams to perform during the reception.  Chris Nolan, of Spirit of the Tsars, offered guests complimentary tastings of his rare ultra-premium Golden sipping vodka.

In his book, Another Planet: New York Portraits 1976 – 1996 Von Hohenberg lived and photographed when the giants of fashion, art and society rubbed elbows with drag queens and addicts in clubs like the legendary Studio 54. The book contains portraits of personalities like Allen Ginsberg, Julian Schnabel, Cornelia Guest, and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., to name just a few.

 

In Andy Warhol: The Day the Factory Died, Christophe documented Andy Warhol’s Memorial Service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on April 1, 1987. His photos from that day, stand as a time capsule published to  mark the twentieth anniversary of Andy Warhol’s death.
