'John Gossage is an artist who makes history present in photographs. He photographs places and sites that tell an everyday story: paths worn through abandoned tracts of land, corners where debris collects, markings on a wall, a table after a meal. Gossage photographs that which has just occurred to remind us that we may have already forgotten it happened or that we were there. By asking us look at what we have misplaced or abandoned he brings us face to face with the present as it becomes history.' -Stephen Daiter Gallery
'This should give you the idea that when you go somewhere else, you bring who you are, and what you've become, with you, and you misinterpret things. It's that disjuncture of being a foreigner. I wanted to get that, to reinforce that disjunction between what something means, what something looks like and what something might be.' John Gossage
Dedicated to high speed territories. A group of Italian and foreign photographers spend three years scouring the areas that are taking space along the new high speed and high capacity railway line. Their aim is to capture the extent of change at the moment of transformation, just when the visual perception of the landscape seems suspended between signs of fragility and continuity.
This second volume continues the thematic series dedicated to the photographic research project Linea veloce Bologna-Milan. It presents the results of the work by Dominique Auerbacher along the stretch between Bologna and Parma in spring 2004. A year on, this research on the same territory that was the subject of research carried out by the American photographer John Gossage in 2003. This project has been organized by Linea di Confine per Fotografia Contemporanea, Rubiera, Reggio Emilia.
