AT 3 : Simple Subject Composition

Staircase, by Ralph Gibson

This black and white image is successful because it has impact! Gibson's use of line, light, tone and texture strengthen and solidify the composition. There is such life and movement in this image and it seems to beckon the viewer to walk up the steps to see where they might lead. He has transformed a common subject into an aesthetically pleasing art form. He involved us.
