Snake Eyes.
Photographs by Terri Weifenbach and John Gossage.
Loosestrife Editions, Washington D.C., 2002. Unpaged, 33 color and 53 duotone illustrations, 13½x18".

It would be well-nigh impossible to overstate the beauty of this book, as it would be to overstate Weifenbach's embrace of the beautiful in her work. She moves calmly and deliberately among the gardens and roads of the tiny Italian town she has taken as subject. Then along comes Mr. Gossage, her husband and complete photographic antithesis. The two photographers appear, he states in the introduction, "it would seem, and in the extreme, to not hold the same views." Yet reconciliation is actualized; the counter-point provided by Gossage's rich black-and-white "clues"-discovered first here, now there-are perfectly chosen, commenting on Weifenbach's rich color images, as hers discuss his. The pairing is exquisite. Again, one cannot overstate the beauty and importance of a dialogue such as this. Only 500 copies were printed, each with an original color print tipped onto the cover.
