Library Shelf Location 18.GIBS
Publication Date 2018

Self-Exposure is the autobiography of celebrated American art photographer Ralph Gibson. With his 80th birthday on the horizon in January 2019, and a career spanning over 50 years, Gibson is at a point of reflection in his life and work and decided to put pen to paper.

Gibson covers a range of topics such as music, Catholicism, his wife Mary Jane, and a long line of fellow artists and photographers such as Dorothea Lange and Robert Frank. His ruminations on his life so far display a deep, thoughtful understanding and self-awareness that make this book a fascinating read in itself as well as an illuminating companion to his work.

What emerges is an insight into the mind of an incredible, highly decorated artist. Evocatively illustrated, Self-Exposure presents Gibson’s life story alongside his photographic work. Designed and produced in close collaboration with Gibson, this generously sized publication—as much a biography as it is an artist’s book—is Gibson’s most personal book to date.
