Ten great portrait photographs of Prince by the celebrated American photographer Steve Parke are part of this exhibition. For years, Parke was an in-house art director at Paisley Park during which he took numerous portraits of Prince.  In April 2017, the photographer launched his book Picturing Prince with rare, intimate photos of the late musician and composer.
