Madonna Touched For Dolce & Gabbana: The Bloody Pre-Photoshop Photos
Posted: 30th, September 2010
MORE photos of Madonna untouched for the Dolce & Gabbana adverts have appeared online. Madonna fans may be shocked and dismayed to see that computer wizards have lightened her skin, fattened her nose and drawn thick veins on her flawless arms. Yeah, the actually wants us to believe Madonna has blood in her veins. Can you trust your own eyes anymore – let alone Madonna’s which look cracked and tired..?
Unretouched Photos Of Madonna’s D&G Ad Campaign
by Verena von Pfetten | 12:39 pm, September 29th, 2010
Someone must really have a thing for Madonna; this is the fourth time unretouched images of her have leaked — this year! This time, the images are from the Queen of
Pop’s recent ad campaign for Dolce & Gabbana, and while the differences pre- and post-production are certainly startling, we’re can’t help but wish the design duo
had gone with the originals.
Yes, Madonna has wrinkles, veins, and muscles for which she’s worked long and hard — and all of those things are what make her so fabulous. If they’re going to chose to hire a 52-year-old icon, mother, and super star, they should show her as she is — otherwise, what’s the point?
And additionally, there’s something so wonderfully light, vulnerable, and refreshing about these pre-production images. Now that’s an ad campaign that would have made us stop and stare.

Madonna Looks Different Without Photoshop
Sep 28, 2010
She’s never been one to shy away from photoshop before, but these unretouched pictures from Madonna’s Spring/Summer Dolce & Gabbana campaign ought to show you just how much damage was un-done with the healing brush and patch tools. She looks like a cross between Courtney Love and Bea Arthur on roids. Even E.T.’s forearms weren’t that crêpey and disgusting.
Madonna's Dolce & Gabbana Ads Pre-Photoshop

By Dodai Stewart
Some images purported to be unretouched photographs from the Spring/Summer Dolce & Gabbana campaign starring Madonna have popped up online.
It certainly looks as if the photographs taken were retouched extensively; in the ad, her nose is slimmer, her jaw is not as wide, her neck is smooth, the definition in her arms has been smoothed away, and any visible veins in her hands or arms have been removed. A woman should not actually appear to have blood pumping in her body!
'Untouched' Madonna Photos Leak
30 September 2010 16:07
Raw photographs of Madonna posing for a recent fashion shoot have been leaked online.
The Material Girl is the face of Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana and has featured in several campaigns for the design duo in recent months.
The latest black-and-white images show her posing as a saucy housewife, but now extra pictures from the shoot have appeared on the internet, showing Madonna without any digital retouching.
The 52-year-old singer is seen looking pale and tired, with wrinkled hands and arms covered in bulging veins.

Happy Birthday Madonna!
In honor of Madge's 52nd birthday, we got paparazzi king Ron Galella to tell us the stories behind his favorite shots of her from the past 20 years.
Madonna: A Ron Galella Photo Celebration
by Rachel Been, N.Y. | August 13, 2010 4:55 EDT
Famed veteran paparazzo Ron Galella has been shooting Madonna for over 20 years, capturing her rise from pop starlet to superstar in the '80s and just about every one of her many reinventions ever since. To celebrate Madge's birthday on Aug. 16, we're taking a look back at her life in the limelight by having Galella himself take us on a guided tour through some of his special snaps among the hundreds he's taken of the Material Girl and her famous friends.
Madonna With Sean Penn
Sean Penn and Madonna at New York's Lincoln Center leaving rehearsals for "Goose and Tom Tom," Aug. 20, 1986
Ron Galella: "They left one of the rehearsals and walked to their apartment on 55th street. The photographers were shooting and [Sean Penn] cursed at us and blocked Madonna. A few weeks later they came out of the theater and walked to the Ginger Man on the corner of the same block where they lived, west 55th street. They had dinner and walked to their apartment. There were about five paparazzis shooting. Sean Penn got angry and said, "You're on private property now," and started spitting at my nephew and I. He started boxing with my nephew but nobody got hurt. They were just boxing. Madonna went to the apartment door and started yelling, "Stop, stop," pleading with the photographers to stop shooting. Finally we all stopped. When we were leaving suddenly Sean Penn turned around and socked [photog] Vinnie Zuffante right in the nose, giving him a bloody nose without warning. They picked on him because he was small. [Penn] didn't pick on me. He's a bad boy. He has a temper, and he never was friendly to photographers, always shielding Madonna or himself, putting his cap down over his face. He was always pretty bad. But he was not the worst."
Madonna & Michael Jackson At The Oscars
Madge & Michael
Madonna and Michael Jackson at the afterparty at Spago's for the 63rd Annual Academy Awards, 1991
Ron Galella: "There was always an annual [Oscar] party at Spago's. That was shot when they left the party. She had a beautiful white fur piece and Michael Jackson was with her. That was a great shot. In fact, that's in my book. Their outfits make the picture."
Madonna at New York's Palladium, June 11, 1985
Ron Galella: "She was always great [and] what made her great, really, was she always reinvented her fashion. She's always had very good style, always moving around, great dancer. So she was good for pictures. She had sexy outfits, that was the greatest thing about her."
Madonna & Sean At Dinner
Sean Penn and Madonna at Manhattan's Columbus Cafe, circa 1986
Ron Galella: "Madonna and Sean Penn walked all the way from the grocery store after a performance. That's a long walk from 65th to 75th, ten blocks up Columbus Avenue. They went to have dinner at Columbus Café and the proprietor was very anti-paparazzi. He would always chase us away. Fortunately they took a table right near the window on 75th street. So I shot through the window, then I ran because I knew that guy was going to come running after us. That's how I got that picture, and it's one of my favorites."
Out For A Jog
Madonna jogging in NYC, 1992.
Ron Galella: "She ran with her bodyguard all the way to Central Park, around, and then came back with her bodyguard. Once they left to run they took a while to come back to the apartment so they could get a work out. You have to run with her but I couldnt keep up with her all the time. What I did was go a few blocks then wait for her to come back to the apartment."
American Music Awards
AMA's Red Carpet
Madonna at the 12th Annual American Music Awards, January 28, 1985.
Ron Galella: "I think it's the fashion that makes the pictures interesting. My technique of shooting was shoot fast and get the off-guard pictures; that really makes for great pictures -- spontaneous pictures rather than posed pictures. I hardly ever call [stars'] names. I'd rather them be themselves. A lot of photographers yell [the celebrities'] names, especially on red carpet. I don't even do that there. I just wait, I like them looking at other people, or at each other, or relating to one another."
With Warren Beatty
Maddy & Beatty
Warren Beatty and Madonna in New York, 1990
Ron Galella: "That's when they did 'Dick Tracy' together. They came back from a nightclub and I sneaked in. I got in but I got thrown out. I was discovered. I didn't get too much on them. When they went to her apartment on West 65th, I got a good shot -- that's the shot that you see of Warren Beatty and her coming back from the [club]."
Virgin Tour Afterparty
Madonna's post-concert party June 6, 1985.
Ron Galella: "She's always been happy in front of the camera. She was always easygoing. But it was difficult. Getting her was a challenge because there was always a lot of photographers there trying to get her. She pulled things. She'd come out of the garage with a car so she didn't have to walk out of the apartment."
With MJ In L.A.
Madonna & MJ In L.A.
Madonna and Michael Jackson at The Ivy in Los Angeles, 1991
Ron Galella: "It was rare. [Michael and Madonna] didnt go out often together. In this one they are coming out of the Ivy restaurant. It was always difficult [with Jackson] because there were so many photographers and security holding us back behind ropes most of the time. You didn't always have the freedom that you wanted. He was a big star. Once, when he was at the Taj Mahal for Donald Trump's opening, there were so many people around him in the crowd that he ducked down low and moved low. Donald said, "Do you always do this?" Michael said, "In Tokyo, it's worse."
Madonna Does Live Aid
Madonna performing at Live Aid, July 13, 1985.
Ron Galella: "I photograph everything -- I photograph them on stage and off stage. I prefer off stage 'cause naturally it's more real, they're more themselves. When they're performing, I don't know, the microphone gets in the way. I like them off stage, but I shoot everything."
Madonna at the Versace fashion show during New York Fashion Week, 1999.
Ron Galella: "It's difficult moving around [during fashion week] because everyone is seated and it's a crazy thing. A few years back, some of the photographers stepped on a lot of the celebrities' feet while squeezing through and taking pictures. So they prohibited a lot of photographers from shooting at all inside [the tents]. We just got arrivals. I don't cover it any more. It's just a hassle. I only cover a few events. I cover the big events easy. I cover the Tony awards and the Fashion Gala at the Metropolitan Museum."
Madonna and almost three-year-old daughter Lourdes Ciccone Leon, July 12, 1999.
Ron Galella: "She was more difficult with the child, but she was okay. I never had any problems with her. They smiled into my camera. They were always pretty cooperative."
Truth AND Dare
Madonna candid at the premiere of tour doc "Truth Or Dare," May 6, 1991.
Ron Galella: "Actually, one of my photographers that shot this. His name is Albert Ortega. That was taken May 6, 1991 at the premiere of Truth or Dare at the Pacific Cinerama Dome. It was a benefit for AIDS."
Madonna At The '95 VMAs
Madonna at the 12th Annual Video Music Awards, 1995.
Ron Galella: Considering all of these rock stars [who were there], she looks especially good. She had all these sexy outfits. She has endured; today she's still great. The only one thing I would say is it's alright for adults looking at this, but children I don't think is good to see all these sexy shots. I think its too provocative.
Full Ron Galella Interview
Paparazzo Pop Shooter: Ron Galella
From having his jaw broken at the hands of Marlon Brando to being sued by Jackie Kennedy O'Nassis, paparazzo of the stars and subject of the new doct "Smash His Camera" Ron Galella wakes up every morning hoping to capture the humanity in celebrities. "Are [celebrities] as beautiful as we see them on the screen? What makes them so great? I like to capture their real emotions revealed on their faces rather than posed pictures."
"It's too bad that most of us are born with talent but we do not develop it," says Galella. "I was fortunate because being poor gave me drive to better myself, and that's what I did. I'm an opportunist and that's what made me successful. Most people die with their talent."
Galella, called "the godfather of the U.S paparazzi culture" by Vanity Fair, is considered one of the most controversial of his ilk. Galella's 50-year career shooting celebrities had its inauspicious beginnings during the Korean war when Galella served as a photographer with the U.S Air Force. He then quickly found out that combining street photography with the sensationalism of catching famous faces during real, unguarded moments was a winning combination, and he soon became becoming the king of the celebrity candid.
Although Galella's muse was always Jackie O', rock stars had a dynamism that separated them from Hollywood for him. "It's not just about their music. It's about their fashion. The sexy outfits that Madonna wore -- especially the bustier than Jean Paul Gaultiere designed -- the hairdos, the long hair that Mick Jagger had, his big lips. It was more interesting graphically than the usual movie star. The rock stars were different."
Shooting throughout the '70s, '80s and '90s at such legendary spots as New York's Studio 54 and Palladium, Galella became somewhat of a celebrity himself. "Mick Jagger always liked me," he says. "In fact, when Lisa Robinson interviewed him some time ago, she asked him, 'How do you get along with the press?' And Mick said, 'Well, when I'm in New York I have to watch out for Ron Galella.' I thought he was great."
The current stock of celebrity musicians compared to those of the Jagger-era leaves something to be desired in Galella's mind, save for one starlet. "I had greater interest in [these rock stars] because they were bigger: The Beatles, John Lennon, Mick Jagger. Today the one I'm really interested in is Taylor Swift. I think she's a beauty, not just young and beautiful, but talented too. I think she's gonna be an iconic star in the future ." But capturing a windblown shot of Miss Swift walking down the street with a smile on her face, as he did with countless ingenues in the past, is an impossibility in this modern era.
In the past, before paparazzi images and agencies weren't ubiquitous, and hundreds of photographers didn't yet clamour to shoot a single frame of Beyonce on a red carpet, Galella managed to get full access to truly candid moments.
"When I started shooting in the '60s, '70s, and '80s I had a greater opportunity to get shots because I had the freedom to move around. There were very few paparazzi. In New York there were only about three or four others as well as myself, and it was easy to capture stars. Nowadays the markets have expanded, starting with People magazine in 1975. They get in each others' ways. It's controlled with the bodyguards it's just terrible and I'm glad I don't shoot much nowadays.
"When I did it it was easy to get exclusives, you went to their hotel or their apartment and just followed them around. But now there's so many photographers doing it.... I don't know how they make a living, personally." Currently, Ron shoots select events during the year, leaving most of the red carpets to the paparazzi hoards.
Galella's wealth of photographs and negatives combined with 50+ years of experience and stories inspired Oscar-winning filmmaker Leon Gast to make "Smash His Camera," a documentary of the photog's life and career that was released in the U.S. on July 30. Accepted by the London Film Festival and currently in limited release, the film delves into issues of privacy and stardom, revealing that Galella was seen as both a beast and a vehicle allowing the world to see the beauty behind celebrity's public face.
In addition to being featured in "Smash His Camera," Galella has published nine books of his work, and has hosted a myriad of exhibitions around the world. He is currently working on a book called "Boxing With the Stars" and another featuring photographs specifically of rock stars. "I covered the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame [ceremony] every year in the past and the end of the awards they would have a jam session," he says of the types of images he is looking forward to including. "I got Mick Jagger with Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan all performing. That was great. I got great shots."

Les questions sur Madonna et Photoshop refont à nouveau surface.
Published: 12:44PM Wednesday July 07, 2010
Source: ONE News
The queen of pop has returned to her second job as a fashion model with a new ad campaign for Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2010/2011 collection.
The campaign sees Madonna channel a character from the film Mamma Roma, as she poses as an Italian matriarch.
It was shot by Steven Klein in Harlem, New York, and features shots of her shopping at a local grocery market and waiting for her grandmother to hem her skirt.
The campaign is a sequel to one released earlier this year, where she appeared in a series of sexy housewife poses.
But the new campaign has raised some questions over just how much retouching the images of the 52-year-old singer received.
A blogger from New York Post said: "I don't know about Roman relationships, but I can recognise serious photoshopping when I see it and these ads have the most jarringly distorted heads I've laid eyes on."
Madonna ditched French fashion giant Louis Vuitton last year when she switched allegiances to the Italian fashion label.
Peut-on vivre sans les retouches magiques?
Debenhams has taken the brave step of launching a marketing campaign using photographs that aren't digitally enhanced
By Jonathan Owen
Sunday, 20 June 2010
The game is up. It was bound to happen: a backlash against airbrushing and photo makeovers has seen a growing number of celebrities – from Madonna to Jessica
Simpson and Britney Spears – exposed au naturel in recent publicity pictures.
Now the high street is following suit, picking up the trend for pictures without digital trickery. Debenhams launched a new swimwear range last week, using a photograph of a bikini-clad model that has not been airbrushed or digitally enhanced, along with an example of how the picture could have been altered. It's a smart marketing effort and a test of whether we're ready to see "real" pictures. The caption was pithy: "We've not messed with natural beauty; this image is unairbrushed. What do you think?" So, what would have been different? Well, quite a lot. Slimmed and toned arms, thighs and waist, perfect hair and spotless skin. Oh, and a bigger bust. Indeed, pretty much all of the digital tricks that have prompted calls for an end to manipulated pictures: such images put pressure on women, and particularly teenage girls, to try to achieve a look that isn't possible outside the digital world.
The "before and after" shots, to be rolled out to stores around the country in the next few weeks, will increase pressure on other retailers to reconsider whether they use enhanced images in future.
Jo Swinson, a Liberal Democrat MP and co-founder of the Campaign for Body Confidence, said: "More and more people are realising that airbrushing and other trickery are not necessary in order for women to look beautiful."
Indeed. But here I have to declare a personal interest. You see, I have been the beneficiary of a little digital nip/tuck.
What harm could it do, I thought, dismissing my corpse-like pallor and greying temples as tricks of the light. I even told myself that my growing beer gut was down to a dodgy camera angle.
Everyone gets the odd bit of help from technology, I told myself as I picked up the phone and threw myself on the mercy of award-winning photographer James Facey, a master of the dubious art of digital manipulation. A big mistake. The amazing portrait picture I now have bears almost no resemblance to me – not that my long-suffering wife would complain.
A chuckling Mr Facey tried to put my mind at rest, explaining how with a few clicks of his mouse he had made me slimmer, removed (nearly) all my "skin flaws" and whitened my teeth and eyes. "I have flattened your tummy, made your eyes slightly bigger and more open. I also straightened your teeth and made your visible ear smaller. Not to mention the removal of all your white hair, including neatening any stray hair on top of your head, neck and chest."
I'm not alone in needing a little help; just check the covers of the vast majority of magazines. So, a brave experiment by Debenhams. But I suspect, for a while at least, the camera will continue to lie.

Madonna: Novas fotos sem tratamento caem na internet
Imagens são sobras do ensaio da cantora para a revista W, feito no final de 2008, no Rio de Janeiro
Novas fotos reprovadas por Madonna e sem tratamento caíram na internet na tarde de quarta-feira (27). A maioria delas faz parte das sobras do ensaio da cantora para a W, no final de 2008, no Rio de Janeiro. Na sessão ela conheceu seu namorado, o modelo Jesus Luz. Nas imagens sem o uso do photoshop, apenas com a maquiagem, é possível notar até mesmo o sinal em cima da boca da cantora, sua marca registrada nos anos 80 e que andava sumida. Alguns fãs especulavam até que ela poderia ter apagado a pinta cirurgicamente.
Nos últimos dias, os fãs de Madonna também foram surpreendidos com o vazamento de uma gravação profissional do show de Lisboa da turnê Re-Invention (2004). Na época, Madonna não gostou da direção das imagens da apresentação e decidiu não lançá-la em DVD. "Across the sky", um dueto com Justin Timberlake que entraria no disco Hard Candy (2008) e foi reprovado pela cantora, também apareceu na internet na semana passada. A assessoria da cantora não se pronunciou a respeito.

Fórum de fãs publicou imagens inéditas e sem photoshop
Um fórum de fãs de Madonna na internet publicou uma série de fotos inéditas e sem tratamento da cantora. Entre elas estão imagens para capas de revistas, entrevistas e campanhas publicitárias.
Essa não é a primeira vez que a cantora sofre com o vazamento de imagens reprovadas. No começo de 2009, fotos rejeitadas da sessão para a capa de seu disco "Hard Candy" (2008) caíram na rede. Na época, a assessoria da estrela disse que iria investigar o vazamento.

Uma suposta imagem sem retoques do ensaio que Madonna e Jesus Luz fizeram para a revista "W", no final de 2008, caiu na rede. Nela, o modelo aparecia completamente sem roupa, e a cantora, abatida, sem os retoques no rosto.
Na foto, o rosto dele não aparece. Em entrevista publicada pelo site "Female First", Jesus admite que se sente bem quando é fotografado. "Fico melhor na frente da câmera, em um trabalho. Melhora com o tempo, você tem que ir fazendo para obter um bom resultado".
Ele também disse que estava agradecido pela oportunidade no ensaio da "W", pois foi o início de uma boa relação de trabalho com o fotógrafo Steven Klein. "Ele é incrível".
