Historical Context:
John Gossage is an American photographer from Staten Island, New York City. The first major publication was his work, entitled “The Pond” (1985), which was done at a photography school in a city on the edge of nature, near a pond meant to represent the famous Walden Pond from Henry David Thoreau’s book Walden. It is claimed to be one of the most influential photography books of the last three decades.
