Greg Gorman -  Portraits & Nudes

Greg Gorman

Portraits & Nudes

Acclaimed photographer Greg Gorman is a premier figure in modern photography. If representing the human form is an art, then Gorman is certainly a master. We won't bother listing all the famous faces who've paused before his lens; suffice to say that Gorman has probably photographed most everyone you've seen on the silver screen.

By the mid 1980s, Gorman's photography had become up-close and confrontational. That's when he decided to pull back the camera and literally strip people down for his personal artwork. Gorman's nudes have brought him international acclaim, with numerous published books and countless gallery exhibitions. These studies of the human form are a marriage of sensuality with the mystery he brought to his portraiture. Through the '90s and into the new millennium, Gorman continued to create these personal projects, working primarily in black-and-white and using natural light.
A fine selection of portraits such as Michal Jackson, Andy Warhol, David Bowie, Sophia Loren and nudes are on display at in focus gallery Cologne.
