Photography instructor Stephen DiRado provided this update on Chris Gorman '90. "Chris Gorman was a very talented drummer here on campus, as well as an amazing photography student. After he graduated, he went on to work for Spike Lee on a film called "Mo' Better Blues." Chris called me in the mist of shooting the film and told me he had an offer to play for a band named Belly. Before you knew it, they were up for a Grammy award, traveling all over the world, and on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Chris took the money that he made from the band, and he and his brother started a photo studio in New York City. Now my students are interning for them. Chris created a very unique style of photography here as an undergraduate student, a style that is still visible today into his business. We are very proud of that."
