Throughout his over thirty-year career, Greg Gorman has developed a discriminating and unique style of photography. He incorporates hard lighting and minimal sets in his signature black and white photographs. Greg Gorman’s work is best exemplified through his portraits of male nudes which are featured in this “As I See It” exhibition.

The noted photography critic and curator Peter Weiermair remarked in his foreword to Gorman’s museum catalogue, “Classical in form, Gorman’s nudes are informed with a neo-classical aesthetic. The photographs are sensuous and their sensuality is not devoid of abstraction. The whiteness of their skin is like marble, sculptured by the black of the stark shadow.”

A native of Kansas City, Gorman began his photographic career after attending the University of Kansas and the University of Southern California, where he received a Master of Fine Arts in Cinematography.

Gorman’s work is exhibited in many museums and galleries worldwide, including the Scavi Scaligeri in Verona, The Palacio Pombal in Lisbon, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
