Born in Kansas, Greg Gorman is a renowned Hollywood photographer who is in the enviable position of having photographed such stage, film, and music personalities as Sophia Loren, Al Pacino, and Michael Jackson.
Although he studied photojournalism in college, it was circumstance rather than clear direction that took Gorman into photography as a profession. It all began with a series of images taken at rock concerts in the late ‘60s. Afterwards, he “made the rounds” in Los Angeles until he got noticed.
Gorman’s fine art aesthetic is evidenced in his spectacular portraits in his published work Greg Gorman, Volume One. It features stark black-and-white personality portraits in addition to his more personal work with male and female nudes. Inside Life, a retrospective of Gorman’s work from 1968 to 1996, was released by Rizzoli International Publishers in 1996.
Govinda Gallery has had the pleasure of exhibiting Greg Gorman’s photography in 1990 in conjunction of the publication of Greg Gorman, Volume One, and in 1997 celebrating the publication of Inside Life. Gorman was also a featured artist in the exhibition “Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock and Roll Photography” organized by Govinda Gallery which toured several museums in the United States. Gorman has exhibited his work internationally and has conducted many important photography workshops. He has lectured at the Smithsonian Institution as part of its 1997 “Master of Photography Series.”
Greg Gorman’s work is available through Govinda Gallery.
