rock and roll’s legends photobook|
Nicks, a longtime friend of Preston’s, created the foundation to aid the healing process of wounded U.S. servicemen and women returning from overseas duty. Donations help purchase iPods, which are loaded with music and given to the wounded recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The Preston collection opened to the public on Nov. 11. “Kodak is excited to support Neal Preston’s show at the Morrison Hotel Gallery and the wonderful efforts of the Stevie Nicks Soldier’s Angel Foundation. Neal’s amazing collection contains intimate portraits of many of rock’s legendary artists, and donating the printing of the catalog is an excellent way to showcase the capabilities of Kodak’s digital printing technology,” said Mike Howard, Vice President of Marketing, Digital Printing Solutions, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group.
