Richard Corman himself posted on twitter today: 'Thanks @Madonna! Photographing you in 1983 was so memorable - your spirit, originality and beauty was and continues to be an inspiration!'
Photographer Richard Corman has just announced the release of an exclusive photographic book devoted to the photoshoot he created with Madonna back in 1983, a few months before the release of her first studio album.
'As a young photographer in 1983, I had the opportunity to capture a series of images with Madonna as she was on the verge of releasing her debut album,' said Richard Corman. 'he rebellious energy of the East Village was the backdrop to showcase Madonna's style, spontaneity and pioneering attitude. She consistently conveyed an attitude of fearlessness and fierce determination.'
If you are in the U.S, you can pre-order the book from Amazon.com or straight from the publisher's website: www.damianieditore.com
In conjunction with the U.S. book launch, Milk Gallery in New York City is hosting a special exhibition featuring images from Madonna NYC83. The exhibition is free and open to the public from November 15 - December 15. For information, visit www.themilkgallery.com
