During the early 80s in the unique New York's downtown scene, you would find the multi-talented Polaroid artist Maripol snapping away with her Polaroid SX-70. Documenting through her lens the wild nights out featuring the likes of Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Fab Five Freddy, Debbie Harry, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Madonna.
It was in the mid-80s when Maripol played a huge influential part in designing and styling of Madonna's unforgettable material girl look. Maripol's trademark rubber bangles, cross related jewellery and fashion tops were all as iconic as Madonna herself. And the wannabe phenomenon was then born and catapulted Madonna into the limelight.

Maripol's recent publication Maripol: Little Red Riding Hood features a selection of her iconic Polaroids of Madonna. As well as exploring the creativity behind her during the Madonna and Like a Virgin days.
