Ralph Gibson: “I didn’t choose photography. Photography chose me.” Gibson is member of LM100 and photographed the portraits of his fellow members. Le Méridien’s experiences are defined and enriched by a group of cultural innovators and artists called Le Méridien 100. The group comprises a global array of visionaries, from painters to photographers, musicians to designers, chefs to architects. In this short film Gibson discusses his personal history and his approach to making photographs.

Ralph Gibson has worked exclusively with the Leica for almost 50 years and here is an exclusive interview for Leica Camera.

“We are living in a storm where a hundred contradictory elements collide; debris from the past, scraps of the present, seeds of the future, swirling, combining, separating under the imperious wind of destiny.”

– Adolphe Retté , La Plume, March 1, 1898

A mesmerizing performance by guitarist Nels Cline and painter Norton Wisdom, both masters of their medium. Armed with his guitar and effects, Cline creates lush soundscapes brought about by Wisdom’s brush-stroke spontaneity. Wisdom in turn follows Cline’s auditory twists creating and recreating the same canvas.
