Los Angeles!  If you are a fan of Prince, you must head over to Mr Musichead in Hollywood to check out a photo exhibit of the singer (circa 1977) by Robert Whitman.  A year before Prince’s debut album “For You” was released, photographer Robert Whitman conducted a series of photo shoots with the soon to be iconic singer in Minnesota for inclusion in Prince’s press kit as he searched for a record deal.  Only 15 press kits were ever assembled and they are one of the most sought after items amongst fans.

The photographs in this collection are stunning as it’s nearly unfathomable to imagine a time where Prince was merely a 19 year old unknown singer with some songs and a dream.

Many of the photos from these shoots have never been seen before, so you will not want to miss your chance to see these iconic photographs in person.

Put the luggage down.  Love this inadvertent street art mashup.
