    The Leica World in Wetzlar started out with a special cultural event in the New Year. Ralph Gibson, master of shadows and elegant nudes, talked about his life as photographer and about his experiences with the Leica M Monochrom during a lecture on January 16, 2015. After using analogue Leica cameras since 1961, Gibson explored the potential of a digital camera for the first time with the Leica M Monochrom after a visit from Duncan Meeder, owner of the Leica Store Lisse/Henny Hoogeveen near Amsterdam in 2013. The result was his “Mono” series that was taken in ten different countries – a journey around the world in contrasting black and white. The "Mono" exhibition is on display at Leica Gallery Wetzlar until March 2015. Ralph Gibson was born in Los Angeles in 1939. He studied photography in the US Navy and at the San Francisco Art Institute, and later worked as an assistant to Dorothea Lange and Robert Frank. In 1969, Gibson established Lustrum Press. Since then over 40 monographs of Gibson’s work have been published.
