John Gossage: The Whole Pond and A Little Romance
John Gossage: The Whole Pond and A Little Romance at Stephen Daiter Gallery in Chicago, IL. "...The POND is a body of work – vintage silver print photographs taken around and away from a pond situated in an unkempt, wooded area at the edge of a city. The images and the book of the same title present a foil to Henry David Thoreau's stay at Walden. Gossage's photographs reveal a subtle vision of reality on the border between man and nature. His nature is at once at odds with itself and with humankind, but the tone is ambiguous and evocative rather than didactic."
