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, at Stage | Set | Scenery in Berlin and–slightliy different–at the fashion house Kressmann in Schwerin. A large part of Neal Preston’s pictures and also some rarely shown works from other photographers and album covers could be seen at the Kunstverein Paderborn until June 14th.

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.
