Putting Back the Wall.

Putting Back the Wall. Photographs by John Gossage. Essays by Thomas Weski and Gerry Badger. Loosestrife Editions, Tucson, 2007. 132 pp., 134 duotone images., 10x13".

We have builders in... and it's the start of dark Swedish winter outside... (does that make any sense?)

"This new volume presents Gossage's Berlin photographs from 1982-1989 revisited as memory. These are documentary photographs, which promise clarity - yet deliver only mystery or might promise invention and fiction - yet actually deliver truth. With every Gossage book there is an inevitable nod to the artistry of the Photobook. An exquisite cover fashioned from the remains of a deteriorating album sets the tone of the publication. Essays by Gerry Badger, Thomas Weski and John Gossage presented in the unconventional, yet masterful manner we have come to expect in a Gossage production. This 2007 volume will also be sold in a slip case with the 2005 'Berlin in the Time of the Wall' in an edition called The Complete Berlin."
