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 last opportunities to see his works have been at PLASA Show in London and at light&sound in Lucerne, both of them in September 2018.

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 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 income from sales of fine art prints and merchandise will be donated to  “Behind the Scenes” and Backup–The Technical Entertainment Industry Charity.

Backup–the Technical Entertainment Charity


The Lightpower Collection is proud to be able to donate another £10,000 to Backup – The Technical Entertainment Charity. Since we started to tour the Lightpower Collection in 2014 and donate all income from sales of fine art prints and merchandise to the charities Backup and Behind the Scenes Charity the amount of donation is now more than $110,000!
This would not be possible without the help of friends. In this case a special thank you goes to Ambersphere Solutions, who not only support the Lightpower Collection, but also donate a lot themselves and help to spread the word.
