Rendering D.C. strange, John Gossage-style

By Jessica Dawson

The best thing about Washington photographer John Gossage? The fact that he's rendered my hometown strange. The familiar streets of Kalorama -- my stomping grounds in the 1990s, when I lived there; now on my path from home to downtown -- are the subject of the photo series and 2010 Steidl book "The Thirty-Two Inch Ruler/Map of Babylon." Ever since I saw those pictures, I've seen the neighborhood with fresh eyes. Gossage's Kalorama is moody and menacing -- just the way I like it.
