Deus Ex Machina
by Ralph Gibson
This collection of Ralph Gibson's photography offers the fruit of four decades of image making. Loyal to his Leica, Gibson ranges between genres and creates new categories of vision. He gets closer to them and meditates on them in a way that only the silence of the image can attempt.
Paperback, 768 pages

this is my bible. i would have never picked up a camera if gibson hadn't catapulted me into retinal abandonment. i can't believe i didn't know this book existed though, it chronicles pretty much his whole oeuvre, as showcased on his website, and i found it for just $8 at the BMV. jackpot.
