Speaking of photo masters whose work impressed him, Gorman said:
“I always liked the early portraits of George Herrell for their powerful coverage. I was also a big fan of Richard Avedon and Irwin Penn. And the first photographer who really inspired me, although our styles are radically different, is Helmut Newton.I saw his exhibition in Los Angeles, and she motivated me to such an extent that I thought: "This is a really cool photo." Later we became very good friends. ”
Gorman's work has been published in publications such as Esquire, GQ, Interview, Life, Vogue, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Time, Vanity Fair and Sunday Times.
“For me, a photo is successful when it does not answer all questions, but leaves room for imagination,” says Gorman.
