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 such greats as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers.

Sensual and softly surreal, the nude photography of Ralph Gibson frames the female form both organically and graphically, referencing art history while also innovating in the arena of erotic imagery, at once summoning visceral sensation and calling out for tactile attention.

Thumb through this exquisite tribute to the contours and curves of womanhood and experience the intimacy of the photographic lens.

“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
