Prince: A Private View compiles photographer Afshin Shahidi’s work into a journey through Prince's extraordinary life. Afshin met Prince in 1989 and was the photographer closest to him for the last fifteen years of his life. Afshin is the only photographer to shoot the legendary 3121 private parties in Los Angeles that became the most sought after invitations in Hollywood. With many never-before-seen photos, this is the ultimate collection of – some intimate, some candid, some in concert – shots of Prince, but all are carefully directed in the artist-as-art style that we associate with him. Deep photo captions are brief, but complete stories about Prince's life at that moment - some are incisive, others are personal and even funny.
Afshin Shahidi, an Iranian-born, American photographer and filmmaker, has worked worldwide on a depth and variety of projects, ranging from films and documentaries, to music videos and commercials. Early in his career, he worked as a camera assistant on Prince’s music video sets in Minnesota. Afshin lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three children.
