On February 9th 1984, Andrew Caulfield received a call from his friend Mary Lambert asking if he would like to be involved in a music video she was about to direct. Mary was part of a close-knit group of artists and musicians living in LA, who were into the punk music scene and Japanese illustration and comic book art, downtown painting studios, storefront artist’s lofts in Venice Beach and psychedelic trips to the desert and the whole new world of special effects cinema. “When Borderline fell into my lap, I called on my crew to help. At last, a paying gig” – Mary Lambert.
Mary needed a studio still portrait shoot, production stills, as well as some 2nd camera film work. Andrew had worked with Mary on various projects over several years and agreed to the project. The script Mary wrote called for photos of Madonna wearing the anti-fashion garb, staged around three concepts: Hard, Soft and Gloss. All would be combined in an effort to build a “model’s portfolio” to be used as props. Only three of the photographs made it into the final video.
Published for the first time 1984 brings together the entire sitting of Hard, Soft and Gloss. Bound in an ice-blue hard back cover, with a pastel heart attack pink signed and numbered edition card, complete with a DIAGONAL striped pocket, surface mounted to the cover. Strictly Limited Edition also contains a signed and numbered silver gelatin edition art print. 152 pages, with 105 frames, includes 9 contact sheets, 84 large format images, plus 14 colour photographs of Los Angeles shot downtown, February 1984. Together with an introduction written by Director Mary Lambert, 1984 documents Madonna at the pinnacle of her meteoric rise.
