Paige Powell, former Interview magazine associate publisher and ex-girlfriend of Jean-Michel Basquiat, shares photos from her personal archive.
In the 80ies she often carried the latest camera or camcorder from Japan with her and used them often to capture intimate snapshots of her coterie including this never-before-seen Madonna picture.
Powell says of this photo…
Fresh 14 was a short-lived club with great energy and a horrible sound system, which might account for the expression on Madonna’s face.
Unfortunately, two kids shot each other there and it closed. When I was in New York recently, I noticed that space is now a Forever 21.
