World-renowned celebrity photographer Terry Richardson recently captured these Lady Gaga photos at her concert in New York. The photos are shot from backstage as Richardson captures the candid side of Gaga's hectic performance life.
Richardson is known for his up-close-and-personal shooting style. In these Lady Gaga photos, Richardson photographs an emotional side of Gaga that many of her fans never see. Because many of Richardson's photos are taken right after Gaga leaves the stage, the images highlight Gaga's overwhelming emotions from developing a connection with her audience. Richardson captures Gaga with her green-highlighted curly hair and black and silver gown getting her makeup touched up, weeping and hugging friends backstage between performing her hit songs. The candid feel of the photos shows a side of Gaga that is rarely seen.
