Richard Corman's never before seen Madonna images from the '80s now available for sale.
A few days ago we reported about the collection of Madonna images by photographer Richard Corman that was exhibited publicly for the first time in New York City at the "Virigin Spirit" event which also featured fashions by Prince Peter and music by Jessica 6 and Dan Wade.
News is now in that Corman just released nearly two dozen of these never-before-seen images he took over 25 years ago.
The photographs were taken in New York City between 1983 and 1985 and feature shots of Madonna's first New York apartment, her surrounding neighborhood on the Lower East Side and some images from the set of her 1985 movie, "Vision Quest".
22 selected, signed prints are now being released in limited editions of 30 pieces each. These unique gilded gold framed prints retail for $4,000, they are also available unframed for $3,250 exclusively at Richard Corman's Store: richardcormanstore.com.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Haitian Earthquake Relief.
Although Corman photographed Madonna prior to her unprecedented fame, he immediately recognized her unique potential to be something larger than life.
"I met Madonna through a friend, I was told I had to meet her," Corman said "I fell in love with her energy, her charisma."
While the collection features Madonna in a variety of 80s styles such as heavy accessories, pegged jeans, or the favorite, denim jacket. Corman explains that regardless of style, these photos are eternal.
"I think she looks as modern as any kid walking down the street," Corman said, adding that he experienced "absolute magic" as he photographed the vibrant and youthful Madonna.
