Lee Friedlander Madonna

January 16, 2009

When Madonna was a 20 year old dancer and in need of money, she posed nude for famous photographer Lee Friedlander and made $25.00. Now that photo, among others, is up for sale at Christie’s Auction House. Read more about it below, see early photos of Madonna, and watch a video.

The Madonna photo for sale is a full-frontal nude black-and-white photograph taken in 1979 by celebrated American photographer Lee Friedlander for a series of nudes he was working on. You can see the very explicit photo of a young Madonna all over the internet. Christie’s Auction House put price estimates for the one photograph at $10,000 to $15,000!

Madonna met photographer Lee Friedlander through his newspaper ad seeking a nude model. As mentioned, she was only about 20 when the photograph, one of several, was taken. It seems a handful of photos from the shoot were sold and appeared in Playboy magazine back in 1985.

The auction will take place in New York on February 12.
