He staged David Bowie time and again over 15 years, portrayed his close friend of many years, Grace Jones, worked with Factory founder Andy Warhol, captured Sharon Stone at the beginning of her career, the former top athlete Michael Jordan, Michael Jagger’s ex-wife Jerry Hall, the British art icon David Hockney, Kevin Costner outside of his roles, and countless other celebrities. At the same time as producing portraits, Gorman put together an impressive oeuvre in the field of nude photography. Thanks to his inimitable style with strong contrasts as well as extreme interplays of light and shadow, he produced a classic aesthetic that combined timeless beauty and erotic charisma.  

Titled The Outsiders: Best of and beyond, the Immagis Fine Art Gallery is presenting a fascinating cross section of Gorman’s work, where he stages musicians, visual artists and actors. In addition, private works that resulted from a number of diverse international workshops between 2000 and 2015, will be on display for the first time.

Born in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, in 1949, Greg Gorman initially wanted to be a photojournalist. In 1968 he photographed Jimi Hendrix performing in concert in Kansas City. This picture launched what was to become a career spanning over fifty years. After completing his Master of Fine Arts in 1968, Gorman remained faithful to show business, photographing, above all, actors and musicians for film posters and album covers. His work appeared in magazines such as Life and Newsweek, Vogue and Rolling Stone.
