Known for his intensely evocative photographs, Greg Gorman develops portraits that see through movement, emotion, and sensation. Here, Gorman diverts from his portraitures that serve as testament to the individual character as he sets three male figures against a natural landscape. By photographing the men from behind, with extreme shadows descending on their naked bodies, Gorman takes away their individuality to unite the natural aspects of a human body and the land.
