Rare photos of Madonna as a nude model to be featured in Denver gallery | Arts & Culture | East Denver News

 

 

Before she became famous, Madonna agreed to pose nude for a photography class in New York to earn money to form a band. Her pay? A mere thirty dollars. After Madonna’s music hit the Billboard Charts in 1982, one photographer, Martin Schreiber, recognized the model from the class and sold his negatives to Playboy. He received instant fame in the photography world and enough money to cover his expenses for three years.

But what happened to the other photographers’ photos? No one knows. Until now.

Madonna enthusiast, Shannon Piserchio, has found the unpublished, unseen photos of one of the remaining photographers. Her journey began when she bought a rare photo of Madonna at The Camera Obscura, a photo gallery in Denver. Inspired by this unusual photo that had no information on it, Shannon decided to unearth the story behind the mysterious photograph.

And on March 2nd , some never-before-seen photos will have an outlet. The Bookery Nook, Tom Macurdy, and DeVelo Magazine will host the opening reception for Madonna: The Forgotten Images exhibit.
