It's Not About Me

Gorman's images are visual commentaries, subtle interpretations of his subjects. Each portrait tells a complex story, and people are presented to us in all their emotional facets, sometimes within a single photograph. Good portraits can be eye-opening and consciousness-raising: these visual depictions offer a unique combination of self-confidence and vulnerability beyond any thespian self-representation.

As a medium, photography seemingly can conquer death. In Gorman's pictures, many celebrities who have passed away regard us with as much joy and expression as ever, taking their places in the canon of active cultural history.

In today's ruthless world, fame fades in the blink of an eye. Only the greats of a genre or medium remain relevant to succeeding generations, and the same is true of Greg Gorman's portraits.
