From Meryl Streep to Muhammad Ali, Corman has photographed actors, athletes, and artists from budding stars to major celebrities. He met Madonna through his mother, Cis Corman, a casting director. In 1983, Corman captured the 24-year-old singer’s effortlessly cool energy in 66 Polaroids that he used to pitch her for a role in a never-made film—just one month before she dropped her eponymous first album, Madonna. With her self-styled ripped denim, an armful of black bracelets, cat eyes, and bright-red lips, Madonna looks scintillatingly at the camera. Having sat in Corman’s warehouse for some three decades, the Polaroids ooze nostalgia.
