Greg Gorman Photos

Famous for photographing the most interesting people in the world, Greg Gorman took the shot of Michael with a tarantula on his face, and explains here his regard and respect for Michael.

“Michael was a perfectionist beyond your wildest imagination. Every time we would shoot, he would call me and we’d have a two-hour conversation to discuss what it was we were going to do and how we were going to go about it. He had pet tarantulas; they actually shed their skin. This is the casing of the tarantula that he brought with him.

“He never traveled with a big entourage. He was very genuine and really loved photography. I dearly miss him. He was a tragic individual but an amazing human being.”

More than a hundred and twenty-five of his most famous portraits are showcased in ‘Greg Gorman: A Distinct Vision 1970-2010,’ on display at the Decorative Center Houston until June 3rd 2011.
