In the Taschen Ralph Gibson. Nude, Master photographer Ralph Gibson returns with an exquisite collection of nudes, combining the best of his work with an in-depth interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly graphic, meticulously composed, and loaded with subtle provocations, Gibson's mysterious, dreamlike images pay homage to greats such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers.

"Ralph Gibson practices the nude like a musician tireless rehearsing his scales. Now the unclassifiable photographer has gathered together the fruits of more than forty years of work in a lyrical, poetic and highly collectable book. (...)...a beautiful, imposing book (...)."
—NUMERO, 
Paris

The photographer:
Ralph Gibson began taking pictures while in the U.S. Navy in the 1950s, and later assisted Dorothea Lange and Robert Frank before establishing his own studio in New York. The recipient of NEA and Guggenheim grants, Gibson was made an Officier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government in 1986.

The author:
Eric Fischl is an internationally renowned figurative painter and sculptor. Born in New York and educated in Arizona and California, he is currently based in the New York area with his wife, painter April Gornik.

"A photographer once said that beauty in women is endless. Perhaps it was I who said it. [...] I love photographing women and could say that the form of the female body is absolute and perfect." —Ralph Gibson
