William John Kennedy
Is an American photographer who photographed the Kings of Pop Art at work in the early 1960s. His images include painter Robert Indiana, pop artist Andy Warhol, bestselling author Ultra Violet and poet Taylor Mead.

Kennedy has been a resident of Miami Beach for more than 30 years. Many of the scenes in the film are shot in Miami Beach.

"The true power of the images comes from Kennedy's ability to capture, in an authentic way, both Andy as a private person and a very public artist," said Eric Shiner, director of the Andy Warhol Museum. "Andy intentionally created a mask with his deadpan blankness, wig, and sunglasses. Kennedy's insight was to reveal Andy by embedding Warhol in Warhol artworks. Kennedy has given us some of the most joyous images of Andy Warhol every created.
