The Infinite Subtlety of the Female Form

Limited to 100 numbered copies, signed by the artist, this Art Edition includes the gelatin silver print Untitled (Nude through Blinds, Palm Beach), 1981. Format 28 x 35.5 cm (11 x 14 in.)

A decade after his first TASCHEN book, Deus ex machina, master photographer Ralph Gibson returns with an exquisite collection of nudes, combining the best of his recent work with an in-depth interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly graphic, meticulously composed, and loaded with subtle provocations, Gibson’s mysterious, dreamlike images pay homage to greats such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers.

Lovers and collectors of fine art photography will relish this rare opportunity to own a signed, numbered limited-edition volume, as well as the gelatin silver print of one of his nudes.

Also available in a second Art Edition with an alternative print
