Madonna NYC' 83 Online Show photography by Richard Corman
Madonna NYC83 captures New York City in the early 1980s, a time of prolific interactions among the worlds of music, fashion and art. This economically fragile period gave rise to an edgy restlessness in the city, spawning adventurous new styles and music from up-and-coming artists. Madonna represented this sensibility like no-one else. As this series makes clear, from the start she was determined to define a look for herself, and to carve out a space in the public imagination.
