Fine art photography gallery Immagis in Munich’s Museumsviertel is giving us the opportunity to take an exhaustive look at Greg Gorman’s extensive career in the exhibition It’s Not About Me. The compilation is made by the photographer’s most outstanding portraits of idols, iconic advertising posters and even some of his greatest sensuous shots; now on view until November 30.

Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and Sharon Stone are examples of the depicted celebrities taking part as models in this exhibition — shown for the first time out of the United States — curated from Gorman’s bestselling book It’s Not About Me. Throughout the four-hundred-page retrospective portfolio, the artist is presenting his finest shots taken in Hollywood during his half-century as a photographer.

Director John Waters and Elton John were in charge for the foreword and the epilogue of the ironically entitled It’s Not About Me model book in which the exhibition is based. As John Waters claims in the afterword, it sure is about Gorman and it should be. The artist has intrigued viewers from the onset of his career but, above all, he has been a formidable portrayer of his subjects, capable of showing the most intimate facets of a wide range of Hollywood stars.
