ThePurpleVision Interviews Afshin Shahidi

26 March 2019

Last month ThePurpleVision attended the launch of Afshin Shahidi's exhibition Prince: A London Private View at the Herrick Gallery, which follows the release of his collection of photographs in October 2017.

As the gallery noted, Afshin collaborated with Prince longer than any other photographer, and the result of their close relationship is evident in the intimate and expansive look into Prince's life and career that he captured.

ThePurpleVision was fortunate to spend some time with Afshin on the day of the event's launch, and during the course of 20 minutes we asked him to talk about what it was like to work with Prince, and tell us which of the photos he took was his favourite, among other things. You can watch the interview in its entirety here:

Special thanks to Afshin and Behzad Farsian for making this possible.
