The master of shadows Ralph Gibson talks about his experiences with the Leica M Monochrom
The Leica World in Wetzlar started out with a special cultural event in the New Year. Ralph Gibson (website) , master of shadows and elegant nudes, talked about his life as photographer and about his experiences with the Leica M Monochrom during a lecture on January 16, 2015.
After using analogue Leica cameras since 1961, Gibson explored the potential of a digital camera for the first time with the Leica M Monochrom after a visit from Duncan Meeder, owner of the Leica Store Lisse/Henny Hoogeveen near Amsterdam in 2013. The result was his “Mono” series (website) that was taken in ten different countries – a journey around the world in contrasting black and white. The "Mono" exhibition is on display at Leica Gallery Wetzlar until March 2015.
