Clinch is a well-known photographer of the popular music scene, portraying a wide range of artists from Johnny Cash and Tupac Shakur, to Björk and Dave Matthews.
His images have appeared on hundreds of album covers, as well as in publications such as Vanity Fair, Spin, Rolling Stone, and the New Yorker.
The Morrison Hotel Gallery and Dream South Beach exhibit will showcase images from his book Still Moving (Harry N. Abrams).
Stevie Nicks’ self-portraits debuted at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York to coincide with the October release of her new album, 24 Karat Gold – Songs From the Vault.
A selection of this show comes to Miami for the first time for this Dream South Beach exhibit.
The never-before-seen self-portraits from Nicks’ personal Polaroid collection taken between 1975 and 1987 were curated with her long-time collaborator, music impresario, and co-creator of the Eurythmics, Dave Stewart.
These self-portraits show a fascinating and seldom seen facet of Nicks’ creativity – a photographic journey into the private world of the rock icon.
