Greg Gorman
[Photographer, b. 1949, Kansas City, Missouri, lives in Los Angeles and Mendocino, California.]

 Jeff [Koons] called me because he’d seen a portrait of David Bowie, at the beginning of the 80s—I’ve known Jeff for a long time—and he said, “Greg, I want to look like a high-profile celebrity, living on the edge.” I think that says it all. 
 For me, a photograph is most successful when it doesn’t answer all the questions.
