The rollerskating photo is killer.
Obviously shot on his tennis court at the Galpin home.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

I've tried to research it so dont buy my head off!
I dont understand it. So there's limited print edition of photos you can buy? More than one of each?

Why would you buy one if Katz and Paisley could just do another print or release a book for $£30 in the future. Im confused.

It looks like there are 10 prints of each photo, each signed and numbered from Katz. It also says that once each addition is sold out, these photos will never be available again from Katz for purchase.


I take that to mean that these featured photos will probably not be in a book from Katz.

It wouldn't stop them being a book...if that ever happens...it's just that these are signed pieces of art...one of kind (or 10 of a kind, if you like) reproduced on quality paper; museum ready images. They'll look spectacular. Very different from a dang book.

Featuring these pictures in a book would cheapen the quality of them. They're simply too beautiful for Jeff(whom is still a sought after photographer) to lower himself to the level of a book. Unless he does a high glossed coffee table book.

The Parade era pics are my favorite. Very artistic and beautifully done. The “Batman on skates” is classic biggrin Jeff Katz is a fantastic photographer.

You don't even know why you contributed to this thread do you? You mean like Warhol, Lebowitz, DiCorcia et al? They lowered themselves pretty low then. Fool.

Jeff Katz was always my favorite photographer, for many decades. Better than Annie.

That said, i think that SOTT album cover on that site is better than the released one!

.
I prefer the released version of the SOTT cover photo but it's interesting to see that they shot two batches of photos: one with a blue drum kit and a matching turtleneck on Prince and one where both the drums and his turtleneck are yellow. smile
.


I always thought he only shot Prince in a blue turtleneck and te blue drumkit and later altered it to yellow (pre photoshop).

I downloaded all of them & come in addtion to my Jeff Katz collection...

There are several shots with yellow and several with blue colours – changing colours in postproduction in 1987 and on several photos would've been a massive task.

Oops sorry...it's picture n°11 but I like as well the n°100. Some are not worth to be purchased (example n°284).

Both of your picks are nice. #284 is for the hand freaks.

Beautiful pictures. I wish I could own some of these original prints. The estate along with Jeff Katz should come up with a really exceptional book. These photos are insane. A high quality book would sell and sell very well. Plus these pictures need to be shared and not hoarded for the elites that can afford these steep, crazy prices.

Do you have an issue with someone making money off their own work?

I remember the lead up promotion to U.T.C.M.. It was different posters of different poses of Prince(r.i.p.) posted everywhere where I lived. Too bad they were hard to pull off the surface.giggle
