Ralph Gibson – Self-Exposure
Written in candid prose, Gibson takes the reader through his life and career that spans over 50 years. Gibson’s story is a fascinating one, from his earliest memories growing up in California to his time in the navy and his continuous love affair with photography. Gibson’s memories are time-capsules, filled with rich characters and period details. Often moving, the narratives of his at times troublesome childhood provide a rich background to the charismatic artist Gibson has become. His ruminations on his life so far display a deep, thoughtful understanding and self-awareness that make this book a fascinating read in itself as well as an illuminating companion to his work. Evocatively illustrated, Self Exposure presents Gibson’s life story alongside his photographic work, all presented with high quality production values.
