Striped Nude by Ralph Gibson

Ralph Gibson Biography

1939, Los Angeles ?

American contemporary master photographer, Ralph Gibson's high-contrast photography - 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.
