photo-eye Gallery's current exhibition Rendezvous with Light prominently features work by Dallas-based landscape photographer David H. Gibson – including a number of his exquisite handmade artist books. Gibson's artistic practice often revolves around how light and atmosphere render an environment over time employing the camera to permanently record these ephemeral effects in sequence. David's process truly shines in book form where a full scene can be viewed in order at an intimate distance, lending a sense of enchantment to something as common as a sunrise.

Gibson is a consummate craftsman. Each book is painstakingly constructed by hand from the gorgeous archival materials such as 100% cotton rag paper, Mohair bookbinding fabric, and each plate is printed to gallery standards. The artist books are available in Limited Editions.
