5.0 out of 5 stars The Photographers Photographer., 21 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Actor (SIGNED)
One of the books of the year 2012. This is a collection of black and white images from 1975 being published for the first time. Gossage cased the joints to produce a timely topography of American banking institutions. The photographs have a similar feel to Lee Friedlander images. It's an understated book that like his other books, builds with repeated viewing.
He is best known for his black and white photography, with his seminal book "The Pond", that release their information slowly. His work has a literary feel, "The Actor" being his dry pulp fiction book. It's well worth finding his colour photobook of 2012: The Code, his deciphering of Japanese streets. He is championed by other better known photographers like Martin Parr or Alec Soth, he deserves more mainstream recognition. An intelligent artist that produces work that questions your attitudes to what good photographs should or could be...What other photobooks aspire to being...
At what appears banal on first viewing, peels back layers of meaning, repeated views feel like reading anew.
