Installation will feature Revealing, Never Before Seen images of the Funky Pop Icon taken in his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. On the Streets and in his manager’s home these portraits are probing and insightful. They show the honest, the moody and the playful sides of a burgeoning talent that was about to assault our senses and sexual sensibilities through his highly charged music while changing the definition of a pop star.

Opens February 20th, at Mr. Musichead Gallery in Los Angeles.
