About the American photographer, John GOSSAGE (b. 1946 in New York)

John GOSSAGE has left school at 16 and taking private instruction from Lisette MODEL, Alexey BRODOVITCH and Bruce DAVIDSON. He is using his photographs to explore under-recognised elements of the urban environment such as abandoned tracts of land, debris and garbage, and graffiti, and themes of surveillance, memory and the relationship between architecture and power. Since 1990 he has concentrated almost exclusively on publications, producing over 20 titles.
