From the publisher: "There and Gone focuses on the topographical contradiction of one structure being laid upon another, and the way one looks (and is seen) across the resulting borders. Using surveillance film and telephoto lenses, Gossage photographed the double border between San Diego and Mexico: the one of politics -- fences, footprints and dirt paths -- and the one of geography, where the land meets the sea. Omitting those characteristics normally used in the identification of individuals, Gossage draws attention to what can be communicated through posture, gestures, and the placement of an individual in a crowd."
