Be it still lifes, street scenes, gestures, the female body or condensed sections of abstract geometric studies – Ralph Gibson is an unparalleled master of the suggestive understatement. In 2013, the legendary photographer (*1939) discovered the Leica M Monochrom, taking it on his travels around the globe. The resulting series, simply titled Mono, was first published in (LFI 2/2014).
The project was indirectly initiated by Duncan Meeder, owner of the Leica Store Lisse near Amsterdam, who convinced the photographer – a longstanding advocate of analogue photography – to give the M Monochrom a try. LFI is now able to present the series in the form of an exquisitely printed, limited edition volume published in collaboration with Duncan Meeder.
The 104-page book comes with one fine-art print (33 × 42.5 cm) individually hand-signed by the photographer, both of which are contained in a black velvet slipcase. The edition is limited to 100 volumes, and retails at 750 euros.
