By any measure John Gossage is a non-conformist. He was thrown out of high school at sixteen, yet taught college at the graduate school level for close to twenty years. He was never formally trained as a graphic designer, yet has designed twelve of his own photography books, as well as numerous books for other artists. He grew up in a household where there was no art, no music, and no books, yet has amassed a personal library of thousands of photography books, curated dozens of photography exhibitions, and served as a consultant to art collectors and foundations around the world. Published books include One Day. Ten Photographers (Kehrer, 2011), The Absolute Truth (Super Labo, 2011), The Thirty-Two Inch Ruler/Map of Babylon (Steidl, 2010), The Auckland Project: Photographs by John Gossage and Alec Soth (Radius Books, 2010), The Pond (Aperture, 2010), Here (Rochester Art Center, 2010), Secrets of Real Estate (John Gossage, 2008), America (Rocket Gallery, 2007), Putting Back the Wall (Loosestrife Editions, 2007), Berlin in the Time of the Wall (Loosestrife Editions, 2004), and more.
