About George Lange

George Lange

George Lange is an internationally known, contemporary photographer, known for his energetic and joyful pictures. His pictures often surprise us with unexpected twists such as subjects posing in boxes or chairs suspended from walls. One of his most iconic shots shows Sophia Loren in an evening dress at a villa in Beverly Hills with a leaf blower strapped to her back. Another example is the photo of Ewan McGregor smoking a cigarette with his head in a lion’s mouth. George also took the only posed picture of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates together, sitting in Steve’s home in Mountain View, California.

 

George Lange is a native of Pittsburgh, PA. It was there that his parents gave him a camera when he was seven years old, unknowingly planting the seed for a long and successful career in photography. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design when the photo department was run by Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. George was instrumental in bringing photographer Wendy McNeil to the school and subsequently studying with her.

 

Early in his career he worked with giants of photography such as Duane Michals and Annie Leibovitz, where he learned the fine art of storytelling through images (Duane) and the choreography of a big commercial shoot (Annie). Immediately after, he went out on his own and began to shoot for magazines such as Rolling Stone, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, Teen People, NY Times Magazine, Vogue, Vanity Fair, GEO and Fortune among many others.

 

George also shot many of the iconic images from 90’s TV shows such as Friends, Frazier, Dawson’s Creek, and Seinfeld. Later he shot ads for TLC with hit shows like Cake Boss and Honey Boo Boo. He shot ads for movie posters including Jackie Brown, Little Rascals, Flintstones and many Jim Carrey movies.

 

George’s popular book The Unforgettable Photograph, published in 2013 by Workman Publishing and co-authored by Scott Mowbray, was published in multiple languages internationally. It got the attention of Instagram and landed George the position of the first Artist in Residence for Creative Shop, the in-house creative agency at Instagram and Facebook.

 

His pictures have been included in various publications including most of the large monographs on photographer Francesca Woodman as well as Light in the Darkness, a book about Bruce Springsteen. His photograph of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates is in the collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.

Currently George is breathing new life into his past work by creating large-scale, limited edition prints. A reexamination of his most iconic images proves that he has always been able to bring joy and energy to any setting, with any subject – whether movie stars, corporate giants or ordinary, everyday life.
