Prince’s photographer and friend Afshin Shahidi spent years capturing the late singer on stage and at home. Shahidi is the father to “Black-ish” star Yara Shahidi.
In a recent interview with GMA, Shahidi revealed “Two months before he passed, he had… sent her a private message just saying, ‘I, I love your show, ‘Black-ish’, and your character’s one of my favorite characters on the show.'”

Over a year after Prince’s sudden death, Shahidi is set to release never-before-published photos in a new book entitled ‘A Private View‘. The book features a foreword by Beyonce Knowles-Carter.
Afshin Shahidi met Prince in 1993 becoming his cinematographer and one of the only people allowed to photograph him.
