A decade after his first TASCHEN book, Deus ex Machina, master photographer Ralph Gibson returns with an exquisite collection of nudes, combining the best of his recent work with an in-depth interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly graphic, meticulously composed and loaded with subtle provocations, Gibson's mysterious, dreamlike images of the female form pay homage to greats such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers. This is part of a Collectors Edition that’s limited to 1,200 copies, signed by the artist.
