Inhaltsangabe: This companion volume to the 2005 "Berlin in the Time of the Wall" presents Gossage's Berlin photographs from 1982-1989 revisited as memory. There are documentary photographs, which might promise clarity - yet deliver only mystery. And then there are the poetic photographs of John Gossage, which 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. The 2007 volume will also be sold in a slip case with the 2005 "Berlin" edition. The Pond (Aperture, 1985) and Stadt de Schwarz (Loosestrife, 1987) two previous titles by Gossage are highlighted in the recently published History of the Photobook Vol. 2. (Phaidon).

Berlin, one might say, is the place where photography became both easy and difficult for him. Easy because there was such a rich vein of subject matter, history piled up in front of his eyes, one metaphorical layer upon another, like the different strata that can reveal so much to the archaeologist when a trench is cut through a site. But such strata, translated into the archaeologist's sectional drawings, are notoriously difficult to read, and that, in a nutshell, was where the difficulty, the challenge lay for Gossage. He was faced with the task of evaluating the evidence, reading it, recording it, interpreting it, and fashioning it into a coherent 'report'--both for himself and for his audience. Of course, as John Gossage is an artist, the 'report' may be oblique, poetic, metaphorical, subjective, and ambiguous. In short, it is a creative interpretation." Signed by Author.
