In Refractions 2, Ralph Gibson gives intellectual, philosophical and incredibly practical guidance to photographers on how to develop a distinctive visual signature in their work.
When looking at fine photographs – you can identify a Bresson, an Atget, a Mann, an Arbus – and a Gibson from across the room. How did these photographers find such a unique and identifiable way of seeing and making photographs?
Gibson reveals his process and openly invites the reader to grow and refine their work by his examples. This book will be useful to advancing photographers, teachers, libraries and collectors alike. As noted by a Gibson student, “an honest read of this book will move you forward many years in your practice of making images.”
