“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 …” ~ Stevie Nicks

I can definitely relate to what Stevie says in this quote, as I'm sure any other blogger might. I recently found some of her polaroid self-portraits around the internet, which she began taking in the mid-1970s. These ones are my favorites.
