STEVE PARKE started working with Prince in 1988, after a mutual friend showed Prince some of Steve's photorealistic paintings. He designed everything from album covers and merchandise to sets for Prince's tours and videos.
Somewhere in all of this, he became Paisley Park's official art director. He began photographing Prince at the request of the star himself, and continued to do so for the next several years.
The images in this new book, Picturing Prince (Cassell), are the arresting results of this collaboration.
Steve will be giving a slideshow talk about his work with Prince and signing copies of this beautiful new book.
