Now a New York Times bestseller! Featuring a foreword by Beyonc Knowles-Carter. Afshin Shahidi met Prince in 1993 and soon became his cinematographer and later one of the only people allowed to photograph him. He collaborated with Prince longer than any other photographer. Afshin was the only photographer allowed to shoot the legendary 3121 private parties in Los Angeles that became the most sought after invitations in Hollywood; some of those photos are included in this book. Prince: A Private View compiles photographer Afshin Shahidi's work into a journey through Prince's extraordinary life. With never-before-seen photos, it is the ultimate collection of shots of Prince. Brief, but complete and rich, stories about Shahidi and Prince's collaboration and time together are alternately incisive, personal, and even funny.
Dit is niet louter alleen een prachtig foto boek. Cinematographer Afshin Shahidi deelt ook persoonlijke anekdotes van zijn intieme samenwerking met deze legendarische artiest. Kortom een "must have" niet alleen voor de Prince fans maar ook voor iedereen die van schoonheid en mysterie houdt.
