He is known as the creator of iconic 1960s pop culture paintings, but now you have a chance to see another side of Andy Warhol.

The University of Virginia Art Museum recently received a gift over 100 amateur photographs taken by Warhol between 1971 and his death in 1987. Now the majority of them on display at the museum.

"Some were sittings for portraits, some were pictures of everyday life, and they make kind of a time capsule of the last great part of his career," explained Curator Matthew Affron.

Many of the photographs were taken using a basic Polaroid camera.

The exhibit runs through June.
