Jack Wilson’s Waltz is, in the words of its author, a book “with a particular context, of photographs to settle the feeling that I did not understand about my home. To do that I set out, starting in 2003, to see what clarity my pictures might bring.”

And so came into being these photos of scenes, things, minor events and the look in the eyes of the young, all taken in everyday non-iconic places throughout John Gossage’s (born 1946) travels across America. Gossage’s ongoing look at his country within these pages is like a dance: rhythmic, redeeming, restorative, intuitive; but tentatively hopeful. “I would like to believe all of it,” he writes, “that we will be saved, but on Connecticut Avenue there is graffiti that says ‘Where is Lee Harvey Oswald when we need him?’ All I can hear is the faint echoing gun shots coming from Wounded Knee.”

Signed copies are signed on a small tipped-in print, pictured below (click to enlarge). Print is afixed over the small illustration of the same image as instructed by John Gossage. Image size: 4½x5½ inches, Paper size: 5x7 inches
