Robert Whitman explored his passion for photography while traveling the world after college. He found that with his camera he was able to experience people and places he never would have encountered. In 1977, Whitman was approached by Prince's manager to photograph the singer, who was 19 at the time and in the midst of recording his first album, for a brochure to send to record companies in hopes of getting him a contract. The resulting photos show a rarely seen era of Prince. Whitman continued to photograph people from all over and has the ability to reveal the common humanity that unites us all.
