Sensual and softly surreal, the nude photography
of Ralph Gibson
frames the female form both organically and graphically, referencing art history while also innovating in the arena of erotic imagery, at once summoning visceral sensation and calling out for tactile attention. Thumb through this exquisite tribute to the contours and curves of womanhood
and experience the intimacy of the photographic lens.
Reviving TASCHEN’s sold-out Collector’s Edition
, this tribute gathers the best of Gibson’s exquisite nudes
alongside some of his most recent works
in an accessible, revised format, complete with a fresh in-depth interview by Eric Fischl
. Strikingly graphic, meticulously composed, and loaded with subtle provocations, the master photographer’s mysterious, dreamlike images
pay homage to greats such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers."A photographer once said that beauty in women is endless. Perhaps it was I who said it. [...] I love photographing women and could say that the form of the female body is absolute and perfect."
