Kunstfoyer : Ralph Gibson : Secret of Light


Until November 26, the Kunstfoyer in Munich presents a retrospective of Ralph Gibson: Secret of Light.

Gibson’s works, created since the early 1960s, completely contradict the conventional definition of the photographic medium – the meticulous recording of so-called reality: Gibson is not interested in the photographic documentation of reality, he considers photography itself as an aesthetic reality. A leitmotif of his work arises from the original meaning of the term photography: drawing with light. Gibson not only needs light as a prior material for the creation of each of his photographs, light itself becomes an object of study and a means of design. But the game with his opponent, the shadow, is just as important. Gibson thus makes light the theme of his work.
