The photographer Geordie Wood just posted a picture of Lady GaGa that he took in 2008. You can see the image by clicking on the thumb above and you can read what he wrote and how he met Lady GaGa.
One fine day in August 2008 I was shooting street style for style.com in the Meatpacking District. My editor and I were trolling for stylish folks when we happened upon the young woman posing above. When we approached her she was shopping with her mom but took a moment to pose for a photo. After taking three frames I asked for her info and in a very serious tone she responded, I am Lady Gaga - a singer/songwriter. It took all my energy to not break into hysterics, needless to say I let out a laugh later that day.
Sure enough it only took a couple months until she started popping up everywhere. After recounting this story recently to a friend I decided to dig up the photos. It seems that I caught her in the early stages of transformation into the cyborg we know and love today.
Lady Gaga Now and GagaImages, require a lot of time and dedication. We do everything for passion and entirely for free,
but it still takes a lot of money to run two platforms. If you want to support our websites, you can donate even a small amount and
we'll make sure each penny is worth it.
