eBook John Gossage & Alec Soth: The Auckland Project download

Gossage has (as usual) some knock out images, this time with gorgeous color palettes. The two works together are greater than the individual books. Likely extremely collectible and great to handle.

In the Spring of 2009, John Gossage and Alec Soth were invited to photograph in Auckland, New Zealand. For both, it was a trip of departures. Gossage has been working in black and white for over 40 years, and this trip yielded one of the first bodies of work he had ever produced in color. Soth's work with the 8x10 view camera has inspired an entire generation of his contemporaries, and leaving it behind was key to approaching the world from a fresh visual perspective. The results represent a major shift of vision for these two vastly important American photographers.

John Gossage (born 1946) is an American photographer, noted for his artist's books and other publications 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. Soth makes "large-scale American projects" featuring the midwestern United States. New York Times art critic Hilarie M. Sheets wrote that he has made a "photographic career out of finding chemistry with strangers" and photographs "loners and dreamers". His work tends to focus on the "off-beat, hauntingly banal images of modern America" according to The Guardian art critic Hannah Booth. He is a member of Magnum Photos.

For the project, Gossage and Soth were not only exploring a new land but also new techniques. Gossage’s volume is a casebound book showcasing about 80 photographs, generally one photograph per page, across from a solid beige page. From the publisher’s description: For both, it was a trip of departures. Soth’s photographs are printed on a fold-out poster (a grid on one side, one large single photo on the other) that is housed in a hard-back folder. Both volumes are joined with a soft plastic case (which provides the ambrosial scent of beach-ball material). While the collaboration between these two photographers was fruitful, for Soth, it was also nerve-racking.

In the Spring of 2009, John Gossage and Alec Soth were invited to photograph in Auckland, New Zealand. For both, it was a trip of departures. Gossage has been working in black and white for over 40 years, and this trip yielded one of the first bodies of work he had ever produced in color. Soth's work with the 8x10 view camera has inspired an entire generation of his contemporaries, and leaving it behind was key to approaching the world from a fresh visual perspective. The results represent a major shift of vision for these two vastly important American photographers. This publication represents the culmination of that trip. Both the concept and the content of the book have been driven by the uniqueness of the "collaboration" and the primacy of the book to the artistic practice of both Soth and Gossage. Essentially two books in one, The Auckland Project showcases a playful attention to materials and presentation that marks all Radius Books projects. Unlike 2007's Obvious & Ordinary, in which Martin Parr (in his signature color) and John Gossage (using black and white) published the results of a road-trip across the American South, this volume presents the two photographers' work separately, creatively combined through the device of the book and its housing.

I was part of the group that enjoyed John's contribution to the photography workshop held in Auckland with John and Alex, it was a great time and this book captures perfectly the dynamic between these two photographers, and the suburbs they wandered through at the time, two different styles, two different outcomes. Alex has managed to rescue what was a bad day on the shot out with a quirky clever and human response to John's guns blazing result. As John says, they are unlikely to find there way back to this part of the world again so this is it, it's not going to happen again!

Great pair of books in an interesting soft plastic case. Gossage has (as usual) some knock out images, this time with gorgeous
color palettes. Soth has a touching folding contribution. The two works together are greater than the individual books. Likely extremely collectible
and great to handle. (Two hardbound books by the way, not softbound as described by Amazon).
