JOHN GOSSAGE »THE THIRTY TWO INCH RULER – MAP OF BABYLON« – selected by GUIDO GUIDI

»5 reasons to nominate THE THIRTY TWO INCH RULER – MAP OF BABYLON by John Gossage: 1) because this book surprised me, 2) because it is always a good idea to start from things close to you, such as your neighborhood, even though you don’t like all your neighbors, 3) because I wish I had taken many of these photos, 4) because this series of photographs, pretending to be a schizophrenic inventory, talks about photography, speaks the language of photography, 5) because, as a popular old idiom puts it, the devil is in the de tail.«
