Stevie Nicks’ selfies from the 1970s on display

This month, NYC’s Morrison Hotel Gallery will show a series of 1970s Polaroid photos taken by Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks. Beginning in the mid-seventies, Stevie took a series of Polaroid self-portraits in her home as well as hotel rooms around the world while on tour. Earlier this year, during the recording of her new solo album 24 Karat Gold – Songs From the Vault, she decided to share these never-before-seen self portraits. Each one of these archival pigment prints is hand-signed and numbered by Stevie Nicks.

“Some people don’t sleep at night – I am one of those people,” Nicks says. “These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed – I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise – like a vampire… I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything – I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy – I was the model…”
