About this title


Book by Gorman, Greg

From the Inside Flap:

Greg Gorman Inside Life
Photographs by Greg Gorman
Introduction by Dave Fulton, Foreword by John Waters

"Greg Gorman is to the camera what Eric Clapton is to the guitar: sure and true."--Richard Gere

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.

"Greg chronicles the ravishingly beautiful and the darkly brooding. The armor and the vulnerable tissue beneath. And he makes it so enjoyable!"--Ben Kingsley

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.

Born in Kansas City and trained in photojournalism and cinematography, Gorman's most visible efforts are connected with the American entertainment industry. The films for which he has generated graphics and publicity include Dances with Wolves, The Big Chill, Courage Under Fire, Speed, and Tootsie, among other critically and publicly acclaimed projects. Kevin Costner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Pacino, Kim Basinger, Better Davis, Dustin Hoffman, Barbara Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Warren Beatty, Robert DeNiro, Marlon Brando, and Jessica Lange are but a few of the cinematic talents who have posed before Gorman's camera throughout the years.

"Greg has a great gift, and that gift is humor. It is always comforting to know when I am looking into the lens that someone whose eyes are 'dancing' is on the other end."--Robert Wagner

With a fascinating introduction by Dave Fulton, who chronicles Gorman's career from an insider's perspective, and a delightfully chatty foreword by director John Waters, Greg Gorman Inside Life secures a place for the artist among the top personality photographers of our time.

Greg Gorman 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.

Inside Life is Mr. Gorman's third book release following Greg Gorman Volume I (1990) and Volume II (1992).

He currently resides in California with his dog Pepi.
