Gorgoni, Gianfranco (1941)

Born in Rome, Gianfranco Gorgoni moved to New York in 1968, making his way to the American city by trading a photo essay of sea life to the freighter ship that transported him. He promptly collaborated with Italian magazine L’Espresso to cover the vibrant art world of New York and met art dealer, Leo Castelli who introduced him to America’s most influential artists. He thus depicted Andy Warhol, Roy Litchenstein or Robert Rauschenberg in spontaneous settings, helping them establish their identity as upcoming leading art figures. With his portraits of such figures as Keith Haring, Willem de Kooning or Georgia O’Keefe, the Italian photographer managed to show the individuals behind the creatives and thus highlighted the evolution of society.
