This title presents endless beauty of the female form. Limited to 1,000 copies, each numbered and signed by the photographer. It is also available in two Art Editions, both limited to 100 copies and including one of two photographic prints. A decade after his first Taschen book, "Deux ex Machina", Ralph Gibson is back with an extensive and essential collection of nudes, including his best recent work as well as an interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly contrasted and meticulously composed, Gibson's photographs pay tribute to some of the medium's greatest practitioners, such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while venturing into uncharted waters.
