Biography
Ralph Gibson’s delicately stunning photographs have a dreamlike quality. Speaking of his work, he once said “The alchemy of photography lies in taking unimportant objects or events and surpassing their appearance.” Often working in sequences and playing with surrealism, during the years 1971 to 1998, Gibson worked on a long series of photographs called Infanta, which came about from Gibson’s fascination with feminine beauty, of which the ‘Child and Woman’ diptych is part of. In this pair of silver prints, Gibson juxtaposes two eidetic images, one of a woman’s thighs and the other of a child’s face peering intently into the camera’s lens.

Recommended Reading
American artist, Ralph Gibson is a widely recognised contemporary art photographer - his influential works shaped by a curiosity of the world around him. The artist’s monochrome photographs of mysterious and dreamlike moments represent allusive thoughts and desires; carefully composed and cropped in distinctive ways. Through his unique imagery, Gibson has helped define a surreal genre in art photography where, surprisingly, many of the stories are found outside the frames. With a career already in its sixth decade, Gibson shows no sign of retiring and continues to explore photography with his loyal companion, a Leica camera. Twenty years ago, Eyestorm was privileged to collaborate with Gibson on eight photographic editions.
