The 24 Karat Gold showcase at the Morrison Hotel Gallery will coincide with the release of the rocker’s new album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, which will be released in early October (14).

Nicks reveals she took the self-portraits “long after everyone had gone to bed”, explaining, “Some people don’t sleep at night – I am one of those people.”

She adds, “I would begin after midnight and go until four or five 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 make-up artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy – I was the model.”

Nicks’ photographer pal Dave Stewart, who also co-produced her new album and 2011’s In Your Dreams, selected the photos which will be on show to fans and the public at the gallery.

The singer reveals to the New York Times that she has boxes full of Polaroids of herself taken between 1975 and 1987 and only stopped snapping them when her Polaroid cameras “broke down”.
