This portrait of Body Builder Keith Peterson is an intimate, dramatic composition that takes the athlete from behind and obscures both head and dumbbell, leaving the photo’s focus on the textures of skin, chipped paint, and hair. Visit Andy Warhol @ Christie's to view and bid on the Christie's curated collection.
