Hardcover, cloth bound with dust jacket, edition of 1000 copies, signed. Text by Gerry Badger, John Gossage, Thomas Weski (English/German), design by John Gossage.

This volume presents Gossage's Berlin photographs from 1982-1989 revisited as memory. These are documentary photographs, which promise clarity - yet deliver only mystery or might promise invention and fiction - yet actually deliver truth. With every Gossage book there is an inevitable nod to the artistry of the Photobook. An exquisite cover fashioned from the remains of a deteriorating album sets the tone of the publication. Essays by Gerry Badger, Thomas Weski and John Gossage presented in the unconventional, yet masterful manner we have come to expect in a Gossage production.
