John Gossage Statement


Artist Statement
Snake Eyes

Photographs by Terri Weifenbachh and John Gossage, Loosestrife Editions, 2002

We are two photographers on the same days, in the same places taking different things in very different ways...There is a crystalline clarity in Terri's color, the particularity of her focus, her embrace of the beautiful. Far from random stuff. I, though, am the collector of clues, with a prejudice toward paths and borders, a lookout for the stones that have already been turned.

This book, though, is a single story, the place where things are resolved. What I am suggesting is that each body of work stands on its own thought while commenting on its companion...I speak to Terri's work as she speaks to mine...We have formed a hybrid single view, if you will.
