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 amonst others to see his works was at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, at Stage | Set | Scenery in Berlin and–slightliy different–at the fashion house Kressmann in Schwerin.

You can currently visit a Neal Preston exhibition at the Auditorium in Hamburg until 21 January 2023.

Legendary photographers such as Bob Gruen, Michael Zagaris, Jørgen Angel and Henry Diltz are also in the portfolio and their fine art prints can be purchased through the Lightpower Collection.

The Lightpower Collection runs the Limelight Gallery, 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.

Limelight Gallery presents: Chris Floyd “NOT JUST PICTURES”
A Live-Talk with the photographer at Deelenhaus, Paderborn
6 February | 7:30 pm

Not everyone can claim to have been pinched in the butt by Debbie Harry (Blondie) and ridden with Robbie Williams in his Jaguar. Or photographed Keira Knightley in a bathrobe because her stylist thought the appointment was the next day and being hired for the official photos for Kate and William‘s 10th wedding anniversary….
Chris Floyd can tell all these stories and many more. He does so in his new book “NOT JUST PICTURES” and at Deelenhaus, in conversation with London based photo editor and curator Dave Brolan.
Whether Paul McCartney, Robert De Niro, Damien Hirst or Boris Johnson–today Chris Floyd is considered one of the most renowned photographers of his generation and has worked with A-list stars, heads of state, royalty, legendary musicians and artists.
Chris Floyd is exclusively represented by Paderborn’s Limelight Gallery, where his works can be purchased as original signed fine art prints. The gallery belongs to the paderborn company Lightpower (Lightpower Collection) and is therefore dedicated to supporting charitable foundations within the event industry. All proceeds go to this cause.

Neal Preston’s “In the Eye of the Rock’n’Roll Hurricane” at the Auditorium Hamburg
After the extremely successful exhibition at the Auditorium in Hamm, we are now bringing the “Rock’n’Roll Hurricane” to the Hamburg branch together with Limelight Gallery.
In the beautiful Speicherstadt you can see Preston’s photographs free of charge from 8 December 2022 to 21 January 2023: A relaxed get-together of Mötley Crüe before the next concert or being there “live” as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury applies kohl before the gig. It will at least feel like live, because the close-ups give the scenes a liveliness that draws the viewer right into the action. As always, all proceeds from the sales of Fine Art Prints will go to charitable foundations within the event industry.


Kai Schäfer at the Auditorium
Together with Limelight Gallery we present Kai Schäfer’s “worldrecords” at the Auditorium in Hamm.
Legendary records photographed on no less legendary record players: Kai Schäfer’s “worldrecords” photographs take the viewer on a nostalgic journey through music history. A journey through the soundtrack of your life.
