A powerful partnership whose artistic collaboration has a poignant place in the fashion industry. The creative duo fell into the photography world after both having achieved in other creative careers however, after establishing their alliance in 2010 they have photographed a huge number of high-profile women creating truly empowering images.
In 2017, Luigi & Iango also shot Madonna in the ‘Spring Awakening’ Harpers Bazaar iconic shoot for the 150th collectors’ addition of the famous magazine. Again, with their signature style, Luigi and Iango show off Madonna for the all-powerful superstar woman, that there is no doubt, she is! The black and white images mix gothic undertones with vintage romance – a winning combination for a beautiful editorial. Draped in elegant Rosamosario black lace, Madonna commands the camera as the queen of erotica and reveals the 1980s sex symbol we know oh so well.
“MADONNA’S SPRING AWAKENING”
“Because I’m political. I believe in freedom of expression, I don’t believe in censorship. I believe in equal rights for all people. And I believe women should own their sexuality and sexual expression.
Madonna the Queen on Harper’s Bazaar 150th Anniversary Edition shot by Luigi and Iango in Rosamosario embroidered cape. A tribute to the icon that has shaped pop culture for more than thirty years.
