The superstar's signature style shines during an early career photo shoot on the streets of New York's Lower East Side.
Photographer Richard Corman met Madonna in early 1983. His mother was casting the film “The Last Temptation of Christ” for Martin Scorcese and had just tested a captivating young woman for the role of the Virgin Mary. “She called me and said, ‘You must meet this girl – she’s an original!’” Richard photographed Madonna – just months after signing her first record deal – in and around her Lower East Side apartment. On that and subsequent shoots, he brilliantly captured an early glimpse of the would-be superstar’s signature style that would soon be telegraphed to fans around the world.
