Arcana Hosts A Book Signing With Greg Gorman
August 15, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
On Saturday, August 15th from 4:00 – 6:00pm, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts for a book signing of Outside the Studio, Greg Gorman’s tenth monograph. It finds the noted Los Angeles-based photographer outside the reaches of the portrait and figure-study work for which he is best known, and onto the streets of Southeast Asia. Traveling throughout Singapore, Malaysia, China and India on behalf of Epson to participate in symposiums on fine art digital printing, Gorman got a firsthand look at these very different cultures at the very beginning of the digital revolution.
Working in the studio with the likes of Marlon Brando or Robert De Niro had become second nature, and his long-running series of celebrity portraits for L.A. Eyeworks is viewed as one of the iconic advertising campaigns of the late twentieth century. However, having shot exclusively on film for more than thirty years, the transition from analogue to digital cameras was a new experience for Gorman, and being thrust in front of strangers in China, Kuala Lampur, India, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam was an adventure – one who’s engaging results are revealed in this lovely new book from Damiani Editore.
