ISBN: 9781844039593 Category: Tags: ,


Prince’s former art director, Steve Parke, reveals stunning intimate photographs of the singer from his time working at Paisley Park. At least half of the images in the book are exclusively published here for the first time; most other images in the book are rare to the public eye. Alongside these remarkable images are fifty engaging, poignant and often funny written vignettes by Parke, which reveal the very human man behind the reclusive superstar: from shooting hoops to renting out movie theatres at 4am; from midnight requests for camels to meaningful conversations that shed light on Prince as a man and artist. Steve Parke started working with Prince in 1988. He designed everything from album covers and merchandise to sets for Prince’s tours and videos, and became Paisley Park’s official art director. He began photographing Prince at the request of the star himself.
