Gorman, Greg - Inside Life (XXL-book!)
From images of rock concerts and anti-Vietnam demonstrations of the turbulent late 1960s to today's most recognizable faces from the motion picture and music worlds, Greg Gorman's unique, ever-evolving photographic style has cast modern America in a new light.
This collection of stunning black and white portraits presents a gallery of quirky, sometimes humorous, and always deeply personal portraits of luminaries from all walks of celebrity life--from the genteel Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles to the sensual Sophia Loren, and from a frisky Keanu Reeves to a pensive Ru Paul, this retrospective showcases three decades of movie and music legends as most readers have never before seen them.
Perhaps best known for his arresting celebrity portraiture, Gorman has also brought his playful, technically brilliant approach to successful advertising campaigns--such as the renowned award-winning L.A. Eyeworks series, for which he enlisted cult figures Divine, Grace Jones, Andy Warhol, Patricia Hearst, John Waters, and David Hockney--as well as numerous magazine layouts, album covers, and music video and commercial direction. Gorman has also earned an international reputation; exhibitions of his fine art photography have toured the world, and his work appears frequently in publications such as Detour, Max, GQ, Elle, Vogue, and American Photo.
Greg Gorman born in Kansas City (born 1949) attended the University of Kansas with a major in photojournalism. His graduate studies were done at the University of Southern California where he obtained a Masters of Fine Arts degree in cinematography. An internationally acclaimed photographer, Mr. Gorman's work is exhibited in galleries worldwide. He serves on the board of advisors for the Santa Fe Photographic Workshop where he conducts an annual seminar.
