Synopsis: "In Their Youth: Early Portraits" comprises over 200 of the California-based photographer's previously unpublished portraits from the last three decades, featuring famous actors shot when they were still unknown young men, from teen years into their early twenties. "I decided to do a project that expressed my infatuation with male beauty," Gorman explains, "especially in terms of youth... the portraits don't have lots of backgrounds, they're straightforward. It's really about the person, not the elements. It boils down to the graphics of the individual more than the graphics of the setting." Gorman's intimate celebrity portraits hinge on the sense of his subjects' vulnerability. Here, famous young men are juxtaposed with photographs of promising unknowns: one of the first shots of Tom Cruise, for instance, shares a spread with some anonymous ephebe that Andy Warhol met at Studio 54.
Greg Gorman discovered his calling after taking a borrowed camera to a Jimi Hendrix concert in 1968. In 1990, after producing images for over 20 years, he published his first book, "Greg Gorman Volume One, " which reveals his skills as a portraitist. Gorman has created innumerable unforgettable images (for instance, a 2000 portrait of Jeff Koons shows the artist perched on a filthy toilet, flanked by two leather-clad ladies). His work has been featured in ad campaigns and has been featured on the covers of a number of magazines, including "Esquire, GQ, Interview, Vogue, Rolling Stone" and "Vanity Fair."

Book Description Damiani, 2010. Book Condition: new. L'edizione è corredata da una fotografia numerata e firmata da Greg Gorman. Bologna, 2010; ril. in case, pp. 280, 250 ill. Greg Gorman in quarant'anni di carriera ha visto sfilare davanti al suo obbiettivo un chilometrico e ben assortito red carpet di stelle, da Al Pacino a Raquel Welch fino a Sharon Stone e John Travolta, giusto per fare qualche nome. Il suo bianco e nero inconfondibile, unito all'altrettanto rara capacità d'introspezione, ha dato origine ad uno stile talmente virtuoso da far dichiarare a Richard Gere che "Greg sta alla macchina fotografica come Eric Clapton sta alla chitarra: affidabile e autentico". Lontano per un momento dai riflettori, ora Gorman rovista nei suoi archivi e mette insieme una collezione di oltre 200 ritratti maschili di ragazzi (poi divenuti) famosi e non; un album che rivela l'intramontabile fascino della giovinezza, quando il tempo non ha ancora offuscato l'ingenuità, la malinconica dolcezza e, soprattutto, la bellezza che caratterizza l'âge d'or della vita. Scrive il fotografo nell'introduzione: "Spesso le mie foto hanno catturato quel tipo di sensualità che si accompagna alla vulnerabilità. Il soggetto - quando è inconsapevole della macchina fotografica - finisce per rivelare una verità intima, senza sapere che sarà proprio questa verità ad essere in primo piano nelle foto". Da Tom Cruise a Kevin Costner, da Leonardo di Caprio a Brad Pitt, fino a Patrick Dempsey, Charlie Sexton, Rupert Everett, Johnny Depp e molti altri, In their Youth è un manifesto di struggente, sensuale e "wildiana" promessa di bellezza.

Book Description Bologna, Italy: Editore Damiani, 2010. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 280 pages. Published in 2010. Retrospective collection of all-male portrait-photographs. One of the most beautiful collections of its kind of our time. Limited Clamshell Box Edition of 60 numbered and signed copies. The limitation is indicated not on the book but on the archival print that was produced by Greg Gorman specifically for the edition. Should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Greg Gorman and Editore Damiani: Oversize-volume format. Photographs by Greg Gorman. Essay, "The Moment of Beauty", by Peter Weiermair. Inner linen clamshell cloth box, which contains the book in the recessed center. Original 13 X 17 inch photographic print of Christopher Atkins is encased in its own black folio, which is also laid within the box. Outer cardboard box, which protects the easily soiled linen cloth box, but is missing in many copies of the Limited Edition. Printed on thick, glossy stock paper in Bologna, Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with gilt titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in its ultimate collectible format, Greg Gorman's "In Their Youth". His eighth collection, a celebration of masculine beauty at its absolute peak, that is, "in their youth". "Comprises over 200 of the photographer's previously unpublished portraits from the last three decades, featuring famous actors shot when they were still unknown young men, from teen years into their early twenties [teen = eighteen and older; all of the models are of legal age] . Gorman's intimate celebrity portraits hinge on the sense of his subjects' vulnerability" (Publisher's blurb). "I decided to do a project that expressed my infatuation with male beauty, especially in terms of youth. The portraits don't have lots of backgrounds, they're straightforward. It's really about the person, not the elements. It boils down to the graphics of the individual more than the graphics of the setting" (Greg Gorman). They are all here, today's biggest stars, and the starlets who would give them a run for their money if looks were the sole measure. An absolute "must-have" title for Greg Gorman collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Clamshell Box Edition, indicated as such on the original 13 X 17 inch photographic print that is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on verso by Greg Gorman. It is also very prominently, beautifully, and uniquely signed by Christopher Atkins. As is his custom, Gorman did NOT sign the book itself. This title is a contemporary erotic art photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The print alone ensures that this edition's value will keep. A rare signed copy thus. 200 plates, 1 original print. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GREG GORMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 8862081413. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 16391
