Richard Corman, who shot Madonna a few times 30 years ago but who didn't exploit his exquisite portraiture until recently (including on/in Fancy), has partnered with W Hotels Worldwide, vitaminwater and Rock Paper Photo for a new show called MADONNA: A Transformational Exhibition.
The exhibit combines Corman's work with some by George DuBose (he took the image used in the promo shot above) in what is called a combination of "music, photography and pop culture." It kicks off tonight in Mexico City and will travel to Singapore, Paris, Bangkok, Hong Kong and New York throughout the year.
It's not an official Madonna event, but it's interesting to note that Rock Paper Photo is Madonna's manager Guy Oseary's online fine art photography gallery.
My connection: I found an old tear sheet with Corman's credit, hunted him down, bought his work and encouraged him to make it public several years ago. I would like to think I helped cause these images to see the light of day!
