Coming out by teNeues in July, it showcases his brilliant talent, being part of a very small group of iconic Hollywood photographers, who is a master of light and wields his magic to produce stunning and memorable images.

*Greg Gorman (*1949, Kansas City, Missouri, USA) found his true calling in 1968 when he took a picture of Jimi Hendrix during his concert in Kansas City. The photograph marked the start of his career as a personality photographer, lasting over 50 years. Gorman was later quoted as saying, “I never could take a photograph of anything that couldn’t talk back to me”. Many of his compelling black-and-white images would go on to appear on movie posters and CD covers, and grace the pages of magazines such as Life, Newsweek, Vogue, and Rolling Stone. Gorman’s photographs were featured more than a dozen times on the cover of Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine. One of the earliest portraits in the book is the image below of the legendary director, Alfred Hitchcock, taken in Los Angeles in 1970. The most recent one is of actor Robert Wagner at 90, taken in the Spring of 2020.
