Fleetwood Mac singer Steve Nicks once wanted to be a photographer. On the road, during the Seventies and Eighties, Stevie brought her Polaroid camera with her everywhere. (The Polaroid was a popular camera back then; it produced instant photographs on film. If you lost the tangible photo, you lost the image. There was no digital footprint.) Stevie admitted to waiting until everyone was asleep to take selfies she “never really thought anyone would ever see.” She was right, until now.
Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, and producer of Stevie’s forthcoming album 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, is exhibiting a collection of Stevie’s 30-year-old Polaroid selfies in New York’s Morrison Hotel Gallery in October. Note to celebrities caught in the fappening, while Polaroid cameras are not as easy to find, Fujifilm still makes the instant film.
