The pond by John R Gossage( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Gossage's The Pond was groundbreaking when first published in 1985, and remains one of our most important photobooks. Consisting of photographs taken around a pond in an unkempt wooded area at the edge of a city, the volume presents a considered foil to Henry Thoreau's Walden. The photographs do not aspire to the "beauty" of classical landscapes in the tradition of Ansel Adams. Instead, they reveal a subtle vision of reality on the border between humankind and nature. Gossage depicts nature in full splendor, yet at odds with both itself and humankind. Robert Adams described the work as "believable because it includes evidence of man's darkness of spirit, memorable because of the intense fondness [Gossage] shows for the remains of the natural world." - See more at: http://www.aperture.org/shop/books/john-gossage-the-pond-book#sthash.TWBchLfJ.dpuf

A short history of photography by Gerry Badger( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While looking through his contact sheets, Harvey Benge noticed that one of his pictures reminded him of a 'Friedlander', another someone else. All photographers do this, and if the photograph in question apes another photographer too closely, it's usually a cause for rejection. But Benge did the opposite. Picking out his 'Friedlander' and his 'Parr' and his 'Baltz' he decided to make an 'anthology' of contemporary photography featuring some of its biggest names. Yet they are all genuine, original Benges. They are also all good pictures, not mere pastiches of the 'originals' of which they gently but insistently remind one. This may be a game, but games can be very serious, and this fascinating book is both a serious and light-hearted exploration of photographic style."--Gerry Badger

It was a grey day : photographs of Berlin by Gerry Badger( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Gerry Badger only brought out his camera on overcast days in Berlin between 2007 and 2011. His portrait of the citys back streets and dilapidated spaces is rough, full of refuse and graffiti, and almost completely devoid of human presence. This series of images depicts the forgotten corners of a living city, full of history; a fact that has seemingly been banished outside the fringes of the frame. What is left is emptiness, broken architecture, neglected parks, vacant lots, discarded things all fading under a metallic, unfeeling sky. It lends a foreboding sense of loss, an unnamed but tangible, pessimistic outlook on a city floundering in its own forward momentum. -- Provided by publisher
