“In this day when the art market and museums herald artists who address contemporary cultural issues, David Gibson focuses on the splendors of nature. Amidst a photographic community often preoccupied with the mediumʼs digital mechanics and opportunities, he cultivates the mediumʼs language of light and slowed time. Gibson would not say that he has been strongly influenced by photographyʼs pictorial tradition, but his work is rooted in that movement, especially its embrace and reinterpretation by the mid-twentieth century master Ansel Adams. Rather than mirror Adams or other practitioners of pictorialism, however, Gibson takes their language and turns it on its head. He asks us not to celebrate the beauty of the world through carefully shaped photographic renditions of it, but uses the worldʼs beauty to help us revel in the wondrous phenomenon of photography.” — From the Introduction by John Rohrbach, Senior Curator of Photographs, Amon Carter Museum of American Art

Coinciding with a major exhibition of David H. Gibsonʼs photographs at Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden in Dallas, Texas, this gorgeous new publication comprises three separate clothbound volumes spanning some thirty years of work. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies and presented in a custom-made clamshell box, Images, Panoramas, Sequences is a long-overdue survey of Gibsonʼs highly-acclaimed photographic output. Working quietly and without regard to passing trends, David H. Gibson has created a body of work that celebrates the ethereal beauty of our natural world and consistently reminds us of our own place within it. As John Rohrbach sums up, “The images filling this book exude a sense of quiet solitude. I donʼt feel the need to enter his photographs, to stand there with the artist. Gibson gives me the freedom to stand there by myself and to revel in scenes that cannot be described in words.”

David H. Gibsonʼs photographs have been widely exhibited in the United States and Europe, and are housed in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including those of Amon Carter Museum, Ft. Worth; Dallas Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Philadelphia Museum of Art. Gibson is the subject of several monographs; Images, Panoramas, Sequences is his second publication with Nazraeli Press.
