Snake Eyes
Photographs by Terri Weifenbach and John Gossage.
2002 First edition.  500 copies printed.
Original color print tipped onto the cover.
Loosestrife Editions, Washington D.C., 2002.
Unpaged, 33 color and 53 duotone illustrations, 13½x18".

Weifenbach embraces the beautiful in her work. She moves
calmly and deliberately among the gardens and roads of the
tiny Italian town she has taken as subject. Then along comes
Mr. Gossage, her (then) husband and complete photographic
antithesis. The two photographers appear, he states in the
introduction, "it would seem, and in the extreme, to not hold the
same views." Yet reconciliation is actualized; the counter-point
provided by Gossage's rich black-and-white "clues"-discovered
first here, now there-are perfectly chosen, commenting on
Weifenbach's rich color images, as hers discuss his. The
pairing is exquisite. Again, one cannot overstate the beauty and
importance of a dialogue such as this.
