When the American art photographer Ralph Gibson began taking nudes in the early 1960s, they were windows into shared, private moments. “I would photograph girlfriends in domestic situations and say ‘hold it’ and would grab them walking across the room, getting a glass of water or something,” he told Eric Fischl in an interview for his 2009 book Nude. If the resulting image had a cinematic power or gestural implication it often had more to do with luck than intention. But that changed in the 1980s, when he began approaching the nude “as a total body of work” and tirelessly refining his attitude towards it. Captured moments became considered, pre-determined poses.
