The Fahey/Klein Gallery is exhibiting photographs by Greg Gorman. The show, entitled A Distinct Vision: 1970 -2010, is a retrospective overview of Gorman’s forty years of photography. This exhibition will showcase his well-known portraits and nudes. One of the distinguishing characteristics in Gorman’s oeuvre is his attraction to, and record of, some of the “outsiders” who occupy the fringes of the creative community. This list includes John Waters, Iggy Pop, Malcolm McClarren, Nina Hagen, Udo Kier, Pee Wee Herman, Stephen Sprouse, Divine, Jeff Koons, the Kipper Kids, Quentin Crisp, and Tom Waits among others. Gorman and his subjects share a mutual attraction, Gorman says “I like working with those who are willing to experiment; those who will take chances and be creative regardless of other people’s expectations.”
The exhibition at the Pacific Design Center encompasses the broad range of Gorman’s photographic career which includes his iconic images of personalities from the worlds of film, sports, and music, as well as distinctive male and female nudes. Photographs from Gorman’s most recent publication “In Their Youth” will also be featured.
