Edge of Mists: Photography by David H. Gibson, organized by AMSET, exhibits photographs capturing nature’s sublime beauty and mystery. The work is full of atmospheric light giving the photographs an ethereal quality. The human figure is not found in Gibson’s photographs. This allows the photographs to evoke a timeless quality, before human intervention shaped the landscape. Although these places are also missing the physical presence of humans, an aura of quiet stillness is still created. Gibson’s photographs allow the viewer to trace the beautiful lines created by rough-hewn stones and marshland grasses.
Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Gibson has studied under many notable artists including: Ansel Adams, Ruth Bernhard, Michael Kenna, Olivia Parker, and John Sexton among others. His work can be found in many collections including: the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Amon Carter Museum, the Amarillo Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Tyler Museum of Art, and the Dallas Museum of Art.
