Abstract:

John Gossage's The Pond was groundbreaking when first published in 1985, and remains one of our most important photobooks. Consisting of photographs taken around a pond in an unkempt wooded area at the edge of a city, the volume presents a considered foil to Henry Thoreau's Walden. The photographs do not aspire to the "beauty" of classical landscapes in the tradition of Ansel Adams. Instead, they reveal a subtle vision of reality on the border between humankind and nature. Gossage depicts nature in full splendor, yet at odds with both itself and humankind. Robert Adams described the work as "believable because it includes evidence of man's darkness of spirit, memorable because of the intense fondness [Gossage] shows for the remains of the natural world." - See more at: http://www.aperture.org/shop/books/john-gossage-the-pond-book#sthash.TWBchLfJ.dpuf.
