Greg Gorman is a legend. He belongs to a very small group of iconic Hollywood photographers, who, like George Hurrell in his time, is a master of light and wields his magic to produce stunning and memorable images. During the past fifty years, Gorman has created an impressive and distinctive body of portrait photography.
Those photographic works will now be published in a comprehensive retrospective monograph, titled “It’s Not About Me”, by teNeues. With more than 400 pages, the book features Gorman’s most iconic portraits such as Andy Warhol from the L.A. Eyeworks campaign, various shots of his long-time friends David Bowie and Grace Jones, a young Jerry Hall, and images from some of his most famous movie campaigns such as “Tootsie” with Dustin Hoffmann, “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Cry Baby” with Johnny Depp, and “Scarface” with Al Pacino. It also includes numerous color as well as black & white portraits of Hollywood idols which have never been published before.
From Kirk Douglas, Eartha Kitt, Robert Redford, Marlon Brando, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, and Al Pacino to Viggo Mortensen, Diane Lane, Iggy Pop, Christopher Walken, Dennis Hopper, and Liza Minnelli, as well as Mark Wahlberg, Halle Berry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sharon Stone, Michael Jackson, Brad Pitt, Robert De Niro and Marina Abramović – to name just a few.
