Leica photographers: meet Ralph Gibson at the opening reception of his exhibition

Leica photographer Ralph Gibson will have an exhibition in the Palm Beach Photographic Centre. The opening reception is on Saturday, April 2nd from 6:00pm till 8:00pm. Admission is free.

For over 50 years Ralph Gibson has consistently pursued and extended the definition of Black & White photography. His images are as much about photography itself as the subject in the picture. Ralph has worked exclusively with the Leica 35mm camera throughout his entire photographic career and has had more than 200 solo exhibitions. He is considered one of the foremost Black & White photographers of his time.

Ralph Gibson’s images often incorporate fragments with erotic and mysterious undertones, building narrative meaning through contextualization and surreal juxtaposition. Gibson has maintained a lifelong fascination with books and book-making. Since the appearance in 1970 of The Somnambulist, he has produced over 40 monographs, and his photographs are included in more than 200 museum collections around the world.

The Palm Beach Photographic Centre is a museum space where photography can speak with its clearest voice. This exhibition shows not only Gibson’s photography but also how his photos relate to one another.

Curated by Ray Merritt especially for the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, this exhibition of Ralph Gibson’s diptychs is sponsored by the generous support of the Cygnet Foundation.
