Capturing a wide range of subjects in portraits and landscapes, prolific photographer Ralph Gibson is acclaimed for his bold imagery and technical prowess. Gibson manipulates the camera’s focus to hone in on certain areas of his compositions, as in Wheat Field, Burgundy (1993), where shallow depth of field directs the viewer’s gaze onto striking red flowers and delicate stalks of wheat in the near ground. In Gibson’s high contrast black and white works, shadows often play a dynamic and even focal role.
