Stevie Nicks
may have found fame in Fleetwood Mac, but at home and on the road she is her own star all alone. Determined to “learn how to become a photographer”, Nicks began creating late night Polaroid self-portraits for her own enjoyment during the mid-seventies. "Some people don't sleep at night - I am one of those people," she says of the sessions. "These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed - I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise - like a vampire... I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything - I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy - I was the model..."stevie nicks polaoid self portrait photography fleetwood mac 24 karat gold songs from the vault album exhibit art show

Of course, people do this sort of thing all the time now, but please don't call these Polaroids selfies.

Ms Stevie decided to share these
never-before-seen shoebox treasures while recording of her new solo album 24 Karat Gold - Songs From the Vault, an album comprised mostly of new recordings of old demos that, very much like these photos, date from the seventies and eighties. Though a selection of these  portraits, curated by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, will be blown up for very brief display in New York and L.A. only, a deluxe photo book edition of the new record with 48 pages of exclusive photos from Nicks’ personal photo collection is available for folks who, like me, are already gagging in delight over the small sampling of images released for the album promo parade.
