Sensual and gently surreal, Ralph Gibson's nude photography frames the female form both organically and graphically, referencing art history while also innovating in the field of erotic imagery, simultaneously evoking a visceral sensation and calling for tactile attention. Thumb through this beautiful tribute to the contours and curves of women and experience the intimacy of the photographic lens.
This tribute revives the sold-out Collector's Edition of TASCHEN, collecting the best of Gibson's stunning nudes alongside some of his most recent works in an accessible, revised format, complete with a new in-depth interview by Eric Fischl. The master photographer's mysterious, dreamlike images are strikingly graphic, meticulously composed and loaded with subtle provocations. They pay homage to such luminaries as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while constantly pushing new boundaries.
"A photographer once said that the beauty of women is endless. Maybe it was me who said it. [...] I like to photograph women and could say that the shape of the female body is absolute and perfect." -Ralph Gibson
