Ralph Gibson’s Take on France

Salon Littéraire captures France’s culture, and landscapes over a period of more than 50 years. How many people can say they’ve photographed a place with great skill for so long? The book features a mix of color and black-and-white photos, some of which are abstract. His work makes me ponder and reflect. This is not the classic take on France. I’m not sure what to make of this mix of images.

The juxtaposition of images is important to Ralph Gibson, who was born in 1939. He worked as an assistant to Dorothea Lange from 1961 to 1962 and went on to work with Robert Frank on two films.
