Meet the Author: Steve Parke, 'Picturing Prince'
- October 14, 2017 at 1:00 pm
Mason welcomes Steve Parke back to campus for a special Alumni Weekend and Fall for the Book program.
Following his studies as a Mason Theater major in the 1980s, Mr. Parke embarked on a 14-year run as art director and personal photographer for Prince. In this dynamic role working closely with Prince, he designed stage sets for international concert tours, album covers, and merchandise. To be released in September 2017, his book Picturing Prince includes never-before-seen images and behind-the-scenes stories of the reclusive icon.
As a photographer, his clients have also included David Bowie, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Sheila E., and more. Hear about his exciting journey in a one hour interview and Q&A facilitated by Mason alumna Nicole Livas (‘90).
A book signing will follow and guests may purchase books on-site.
