Ralph Gibson

Ralph Gibson
1939

Ralph Gibson began his career as an apprentice to Robert Frank and Dorothea Lange, and has gone on to exhibit with Michael Hoppen Gallery in London, and in New York with the Leo Castelli Gallery and the Whitney Museum, having become internationally recognized for his striking black and white photography. He founded Lustrum Press, who, alongside a number of Ralph Gibson books, published Larry Clark's Tulsa and Mary Ellen Mark's Passport. Gibson’s images combine the geometric with the human, in abstract photographs such as Child and Woman.

A master of dramatic understatement, his high-contrast pictures - usually focusing on one geometric element (the corner of a room) or a single human gesture (the curve of a hand) - form a kind of dream-narrative when gathered together. Or, as Gibson puts it: 'I embrace the abstract in photography and exist on a few bits of order extracted from the chaos of reality.'
