Photographer – Allen Beaulieu began his photography career in fashion doing photo shoots for local department stores.   Bernadette Anderson, mother of Andre Cymone, had some images from “Shades Of Blackness” that Allen had photographed.  Prince was living in their basement at the time, saw the photos and immediately called Allen Beaulieu for a 3-Day photo shoot.   Allen subsequently became Prince’s own personal photographer and shot album covers, record sleeve art, posters, live concerts, backstage and personal photos for Prince as he developed his career up to the rise of Purple Rain.   Allen’s iconic images are seen on the covers of “Dirty Mind”, “Controversy”, the inner sleeves of “1999” and several other iconic images including one of Allen’s personal favorites he calls “smoke” that is included here.  Allen Beaulieu’s work was published in a comprehensive book titled “Before The Rain” and also had a large gallery exhibit at the Minnesota Historical Society.  *Allen will be on-site signing prints/books from noon-2pm! This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
