‘Madonna 66’ – Richard Corman’s Long Lost Madonna Polaroids from 1983









1000 Limited Edition

‘Madonna 66’ is the complete collection of 66 lost and found Polaroids, shot by Richard Corman on Friday June 17th 1983. Published for the first time, the 66 Polaroids accompany a 14-page film treatment ‘Cinde Rella’ for which Madonna was casting for the main role. Over the course of a day Richard photographed Madonna in 5 different set-ups at her brother Christopher’s apartment. The pictures depict a 24-year old Madonna, 6 weeks before the release of her debut album ‘Madonna’. Richard captures Madonna’s physical beauty, her fashion, her humour, playful sexiness and her total accessibility that took this character into a rare and visionary state.

164 pages, housed in a flesh pink hard back cover, bound by a 50mm thick removable black rubber band, symbolic of Madonna’s bracelets. Encased in a protective outer flesh pink travel box.
