Photo by Brad Elterman.
“I was hired by Dick Clark’s press agent to cover the American Music Awards nearly every year for a decade. I had incredible access and I wanted to make a great photograph of this new singer called Madonna. There is little potential to be creative in this small area, but it made a wonderful photograph.”
Elterman’s celebrity photography is on view in an exhibition called “Like It Was Yesterday” at Equator Books, 1103 Abbot Kinney Blvd.,Venice, California. The show was recently extended through July 23.
