Biography from Boca Raton Museum of Art:
Ralph Gibson was born in Los Angeles, California in 1939 and received his education from the San Francisco Art Institute.  Gibson founded, with other photographers, the Lustrum Press.

His work evolved from documentary to surrealism. Much of his work is two dimensional.  He doesn’t crop his photos, but tries to compose the view before taking the picture.  The works have allegorical and surrealistic overtones. Gibson’s work has strong feeling of mystery, combined with a minimalistic approach to composition.

He has received Fellowships from the Guggenheim and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Leica Medal of Excellence and the Silver Plumb Award from the Landmarks Preservation Committee.  He is the Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France, and in 2007 he received The Lucie Award for Fine Art Photography.
