The Lightpower Collection
Lightpower was founded in 1978 in Germany as a lighting rental company. Since then Lightpower has grown to be an internationally established distributor for stage and studio lighting equipment. The Lightpower Collection was born out of a company culture that has grown over several years with a passion for collecting Rock’n’Roll art. The collection features photography and album cover artwork from many of the world’s greatest photographers and designers.
Neal Preston’s Rock’n’Roll photography represents the core of this collection and comprises over seventy large-format original fine art prints. Preston’s archive is one of the most extensive in the world and includes every major artist in rock history. His photographs continue to be shown worldwide. The latest opportunity to see his works was at the NAMM Show in Anaheim and at Stage | Set | Scenery in Berlin. The next show will be slightliy different–it’s going to take place at the fashion house Kressmann in Schwerin from August 29th to October 17th 2019.
A new travelling exhibition of classic 60s jazz artists by legendary photographer Jim Marshall featuring forty previously unseen original fine art prints from the R|A|P book “Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival” could be seen from March 1st to April 30th 2018 at Vaerket in Randers, Danmark. These limited edition prints, signed and numbered by the Jim Marshall Estate are also available for purchase.
The Lightpower Collection curates and produces exhibition concepts and provides artworks for events. All prints are available for sale via the website. The Lightpower Collection is a non-profit organisation.
All proceeds from sales of fine art prints and merchandise will be donated to “Behind the Scenes” and “Backup–The Technical Entertainment Industry Charity”.
The SOS Charity Fund, an initiative by DWR Distribution, hosted its bi-annual auction dinner during Mediatech Africa and the Lightpower Collection was delighted to donate a fabulous Freddie Mercury picture by Neal Preston. It raised 32,000 Rand (€ 2,050) for the charity!
Thank you so much DWR Distribution for creating this charity and showing one more time how important it is to support each other.
It’s all about the people!
