☮️ Sign O The Times Interview ☮️

RS ☞ The sexiest photos of Prince took place during their time together - later he would publish less suggestive photos, probably also because he is getting older like all of us. Do you think that Prince would have had completely different pictures taken had it not been you but a woman who took his picture?

 

JEFF ☞ No. Prince didn't look at the world like that. He was open to everything. He didn't look any different just because I was a man. He did what he did. He didn't care about gender. Look, as a live musician, Prince didn't make a distinction between performing for men and women. Prince didn't take the pictures for me.

 

I was just the lens that captured the image

he wanted to convey to the world. 🌏

“Prince On The Cover Of Parade 

 Jeff Katz's Best Photograph”

The Guardian ☞  Feature Article

Jeff Katz

“He [Prince] put some music on a small boombox, and told me he was good to go. Within three rolls of film, I knew I had the shot.

 

I captured exactly what I set out to achieve: something simple, dramatic and iconic. The way the delicacy of his face offsets the muscularity of his stomach and the drama of his hand gestures makes this photo special for me. It ended up on the cover of his album Parade.

 

It was the start of more than a decade photographing Prince. I’ve worked with people of immense talent throughout my career, but nobody compares to him. Prince was Prince from the moment he woke up to the moment he went to sleep: he was meticulous in his art at every moment.”

"That's the first thing 👁 can remember.

U know how U can tell when someone is smiling just by looking in their eyes? That was my mother's eyes. Sometimes she would squint them like she was about to tell you a secret. 👁 found out later my mother had a lot of secrets.
My father's piano. That's the first thing 👁 remember hearing. As a younger man his playing was very busy but fluid it was a joyous sound.
The eyes and the ears of a songwriter can never get enough praise.

The ways things look & the way things sound, when conveyed lyrically, can give a song space & gravity." 
And so it begins . . .
