This book explores Ralph Gibson's photographic pairings both visually and verbally. For the artist, this is a departure — none of his previous 23 books and 150 exhibitions has attempted to marry words with his works. Curators, colleagues and critics were asked to write in a reactive way to the artist's work, while Gibson himself wished in this book to explore his concept of "visual overtones", a phenomena whereby images arranged as diptychs are experienced autonomously. This ambitious project, and its resultant tonal richness, offer a stimulating entry into Gibson's subtly harmonious imagery.
