Paisley Prince

£8,485 of £20,000 goal

Raised by 148 people in 20 months
Nicole Nodland spent two years working day and night with Prince, travelling with him on tour as his personal photographer at Paisley Park. In that time she captured the mind, heart and soul of a polymathematic genius in her photographs.

Nicole intends to bring her work into an exclusive book containing unseen photos and stories that give life to the man who gave the world so much in his short time on planet earth. Nicole is editor in chief for Us of America, which has incredibly high standards of photography, as indeed Prince was a stickler for excellence in all that he did.


Please support the project by being a founder member in this project. Your name will appear in the credits in the book and your contribution will help towards production costs.  If we succeed at hitting the stretch target, we will organise a special event to commemorate Prince's legacy.

Nicole Nodland's portfolio includes icons such as Stevie Wonder, Mayte Garcia, Ida Nielsen, Ray Charles, Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Sam Smith,  Ed Sheeran, Sinead O'Connor, John Legend and George Clinton. Her clients include Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Virgin Records, Sony Records, Mercury Records, Universal Records, RCA and Warner Music. Her photography has featured in the British Journal of Photography, Zoo and Graphics International.

Dear Purple Fam,


I am so grateful for all of your support and positive messages, however until I am able to sort out the legal and other issues with the Prince Estate (detailed previously), I feel it is best to temporarily suspend all future donations on this project until further notice. I will update you on any developments as soon as I have them. I really wish I had better news.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. This element on the project has been much more complex than originally anticipated.


PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY FURTHER DONATIONS UNTIL I UPDATE YOU ON THE PROGRESS OF MY NEGOTIATIONS.

Thank you so much.
With love,
Nicole

Dear Purple Fam,

Please let me express my deep appreciation in first instance for your support and enthusiasm for the Prince book project that I continue to work on.

While I retain the best of intentions and the unique material to create the book I described on the Go Fund Me website, I must relay to you that I have encountered more legal and technical issues involving the requisite consent from the Prince estate to publish the book but my negotiations are continuing and I remain optimistic. These delays were not envisioned when I launched the project and sought funding to produce the book and have caused considerable delays but I continue to seek a solution that will allow me to produce and publish book I first envisioned. These delays were compounded by my well documented health – brain surgery which I posted about in November on the GoFundMe website.

Your continuing patience is much appreciated and I will use my best efforts to update you on my progress over the next few weeks. Having said that, should my current negotiations result in an unresolvable impasse, I will return your donations.

Thank you again for your love and support which means so much to me. I will undertake to update my progress within 30 days or as soon as I receive any further news, whichever is soonest.

With love,
Nicole

Hello purple fam!
Just a quick update to say things have been progressing nicely this week, and I'm heading back to Minnesota at the end of this month to get some more exciting content for the book. Will keep you all posted very soon

Dear Purple Fam,

I am so so sorry for the lack of updates. This book is happening, it's just taking much much longer than I had hoped. The reason for my lack of response and action is that 3 months ago I fell over on the street and was concussed, and ended up with bleeding on the brain.
Long story short...I ended up having to have quite major surgery, but I'm ok, am focusing on recovering, and have started shooting again. The book sadly had to take a back seat while I sorted everything else out.

However, I am finding my feet, and I wholehearted am going to make this happen. From now on I'll be sending updates. So far the images are collated and I'm waiting to hear back from my ideal publisher. I cannot thank you enough for all your unbelievable support. Thank you! P.s. contact me directly if you have any questions at all.
