Behind the Photograph
Photographer Dishes on Rare Photos of Madonna in 1980s NYC
In an age when so many pop stars are manufactured head to toe, photos from a new exhibition arriving at the W Hotel featuring Madonna at her LES apartment in the '80s are proof that the look the pop star became known for (well, the first one at least) was all her own. We chatted with the photographer of these images, Richard Corman, to get the scoop on how those photos came about, what Madonna was like back in the day, and what it was like apprenticing for Richard Avedon. Read on for our interview and photos from the exhibition.
