Stevie Nicks' Polaroid Self-Portraits on Display in Miami Today

After a successful run in New York City, a collection of Polaroid self-portraits -- old school selfies, if you will -- that Stevie Nicks took of herself in the '70s and '80s is going on display starting today in Miami, Florida, as part of the city's prestigious Art Basel show of modern and contemporary art.

Unlike these days, when taking a picture of yourself is as easy as breathing, Nicks says creating her portraits -- featured in the packaging of her current solo album, 24 Karat Gold -- was "a huge deal," adding, "It was like writing a song."

"You know, that Polaroid had a button that plugged into it and then it was on a long cord and that was on a tripod.  So it really was a thing," she tells ABC News Radio of the portraits, for which she styled herself in a variety of costumes and poses.  "So if I was setting take photographs, I could set up a whole scene, and then...leave it set up for two or three days.  So I could take two or three nights after shows, and really go for that one shot."

Stevie Nicks brings her self(ies) to South Beach Dec 4th and 5th

Stevie Nicks will grace the aptly named Dream South Beach with her bewitching self-portrait collection 

The Dream South Beach is showcasing our supreme witch/hippie goddess’ collection of self portraits taken from 1975 to 1987. Just released by Nicks this year, the polaroids were taken in her home and hotel rooms on tour. Nicks describes the collection: “Some people don’t sleep at night – I am one of those people. These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed – I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise – like a vampire… I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything – I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy – I was the model…”

Exhibition runs from Thursday, Dec. 4, until Friday, Dec. 5, Dream South Beach, 1111 Collins Ave.

Stevie Nicks, 66, is renowned for capturing emotions through her music (including Fleetwood Mac), but she also captured it through a camera during what many call the golden age of rock. Nicks was a night owl who needed another artistic outlet and eventually began creating self-portraits. The images in Nicks' debut photography exhibition, "24 Karat Gold," were taken from 1975 to 1987.

Nicks wanted to learn how to become a photographer and because she doesn't sleep at night, she started thinking; "Who am I going to ask to stay up all night and then do a show the next night? I'm not going to get [bandmate] Christine [McVie] to be my model. She's going to say, 'Are you crazy? I'm going to the bar. Bye.' Then I thought, well, why not use a plant and I moved on from there."

Nicks used to put the Polorid camera on a tripod and attached a long shutter release cable to capture the shots. Nicks said: "I would sit with the button in my hand so that I could be completely dressed in a long white gown with red lipstick and big hair. Remember, this was the middle of the night. I was usually in the presidential suite and if the light on the plant wasn't bright enough, I'd go into the bedroom, find a huge lamp and drag it into the living room and I'd put it on the plant. Then I'd hop back in the picture and press the button. I usually had to take about 12 shots until I got it just right. Lots of times I'd run out of film and I would send people out to buy me film in the middle of the night. I was doing this forever and I didn't stop until Polaroids were almost impossible to use because they all eventually broke down and we couldn't find film anywhere."

The photography exhibition coincides with the Oct. 7, 2014, release of her new album, "24 Karat Gold - Songs From the Vault," and the upcoming tour with the fully reunited Fleetwood Mac.
