"Digital Color" by Ralph Gibson

Leica Gallery Los Angeles | January 17th - February 24th, 2019

"Digital Color" Exhibition
January 17 - February 24, 2019

Celebrate the milestone 80th birthday of renowned photographer Ralph Gibson with Leica, featuring his new exhibition "Digital Color" at Leica Gallery Los Angeles on January 17.

The exhibition will feature a series of captivating digital photographs taken by Gibson, who solely used a Leica Rangefinder and a 135mm Apo-Telyt-M lens. The "Digital Color" exhibition will be followed by a Book Making Workshop with Ralph hosted by the Leica Akademie at Leica Store Los Angeles, from January 18-21.

“The Digital dialectic suggests that anything digital is compressed...and this applies equally to color. Saturation, hue and timbre serve to create an imagery unique and not very similar to analog film. For this reason, I welcome the idea of a new visual language; another system of control. Digital speaks in subtle ways, often producing an entirely different perspective. All of the photographs in this exhibit have been made with a Leica rangefinder and a135mm Apo-Telyt-M. I wanted to deliberately pursue the foreshortening of perspective afforded by the long focal length.

When asked if I prefer working in black and white or color I respond that I like working in all three. (P.S. black and white are also colors...). With the opening of Digital Color, I am pleased to be celebrating my 80th birthday in Los Angeles - my city of birth, with Leica - my camera of choice.” - Ralph Gibson
