About The Absolute Truth
Every photograph is in truth a distinct unit. To connect photographs as some sort of narrative is simply a conceit of both the photographer and the viewer. All I can say about these particular photographs, is that they are certainly previous and elsewhere.
A group of color photographs from California for my closest friend in photography, Lewis Baltz, whose demands and rigor with the medium have always kept my worst instincts in check.
John Gossage (b. 1946) was born in Staten Island, New York. Firstly, he is an artist who has, become noted for his intellectually engaging, subversive and well-crafted artist books. As well as other publications. In them the artist utilizes under-recognized elements of the urban environment. Including: unused and abandoned patches of land; refuse and detritus; barbed wire; graffiti. Allowing him to explore themes as disparate as surveillance, memory and also the relationship between architecture and power.
