In 2004, Linea di Confine for Contemporary Photography asked John Gossage to document the construction of the high-speed Milano – Bologna line and its impact on the landscape of the beloved Bassa.

13 ways to miss a train tells, with an editing of images that refers to the logic of conceptual art – the reference to Franco Vaccari is also a dedication in the subtitle – of a changing landscape made of construction sites, fields in bloom, cars parked in the sun.

Subjects very much in the chords of Gossage who takes spontaneous and simple images, managing to create a poetic universe made of common and unspectacular details.

The themes of his work, however, are all there: surveillance, memory, the relationship between architecture and power, the interest in those interstitial urban places in which nature manages to survive the advance of construction.
