  • Ralph Gibson
    (b. January 16th, 1939, Los Angeles, California)

    Ralph Gibson studied photography while in the United States Navy before attending the San Francisco Art Institute and working as an assistant to both FSA photographer Dorothea Lange from 1961 to 1962 and filmmaker Robert Frank on two separate films. Working primarily with the Leica camera, Gibson is most recognized for overlaying elements of film narrative and mystery onto the Surrealist subject of the female body. Fascinated with books, Gibson started the publishing house Lustrum Press in 1970 and has since published over 40 books, including Somnambulist and State of the Axe. Gibson is a Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France (only given to those who have made significant contributions to the arts) and his work has been displayed in more than 150 venues worldwide. He lives and works in New York.
