9783836511896: Nude, Ralph Gibson

Limited to 1,000 copies, each numbered and signed by the photographer. A decade after his first TASCHEN book, Deux ex Machina, Ralph Gibson is back, with an extensive collection of nudes, including his best recent work as well as an interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly contrasted and meticulously composed, Gibsons photographs pay tribute to some of the mediums greatest practitioners, such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while venturing into uncharted waters. Says Gibson: A photographer once said that beauty in women is endless. Perhaps it was I who said it. In fact, I remember distinctly having done soand the thought persists to this day. We stare in the psychological mirror of the human body with a fascination that endures indefinitely. At least art history indicated this to be so. The Willendorf Venus is said to date from 25,000 BCthat is a old enough for me to believe in the subject. I love photographing women and could say that the form of the female body is absolute and perfect.

Review:

"Says Gibson, "A Photographer once said that beauty in women is endless. Perhaps it was I who said it. In fact, I remember distinctly having done so...and the thought persists to this day. We stare in the psychological mirror of the human body with a fascination that endures indefinitely. At least art history indicated this to be so. The Willendorf Venus is said to date from 25,000 BC...that is a old enough for me to believe in the subject. I love photographing women and could say that the form of the female body is absolute and perfect."

Book Description Limitierte Auflage von 1.200 Exemplaren, jedes nummeriert und vom Fotografen signiert. Zehn Jahre nach seinem »Deus ex machina« ist Ralph Gibson wieder da: mit einer exquisiten, vom Künstler selbst besorgten Auswahl der besten Aktaufnahmen aus seinem Gesamtwerk und mit einem ausführlichen Interview von Eric Fischl. Ralph Gibsons Oeuvre voller subtiler Provokationen und mysteriöser Anspielungen würdigt die fotografische Tradition und erweitert zugleich die Grenzen des Mediums. Gibson bemerkt: »Ein Fotograf meinte einmal, es gebe unendlich viele schöne Frauen. Vielleicht habe ich das gesagt. Immerhin deutet die Kunstgeschichte dies an. Es heißt, die Venus von Willendorf stamme aus einer Zeit um 25.000 vor Christus. Ich liebe es, Frauen zu fotografieren, und ich halte die Form des weiblichen Körpers für absolut und perfekt.« (Text dt., engl., frz.) 33 x 44 cm, 306 S., durchg. Duotone-Abb., geb.
