Ralph Gibson is a photographer whose high-contrast images are recognized for their exploration of the geometric forms and the human gesture. He apprenticed with Dorothea Lange and Robert Frank, but he has created his own singular vision which often moves beyond the traditions of documentary and portraiture.
He has produced numerous books of his photography starting with his classic The Somnambulist, which have helped define his particular vision. It has also inspired many photographers to see books as the means by which they can control and further their own unique passion for photography. His recent book, Mono marks the photographer’s earliest explorations with digital photography after years of producing his signature body of work on film.
A current exhibition of his work is on exhibit on exhibit at the Leica Gallery LA thru October 26th, 2014.
