American Winter
by Gerry Johansson
"In the works of Gerry Johansson design, sequence, narrative, the meaning imparted by metaphoric titles – most of the things considered crucial in the photobook – are pretty much removed from the equation in Johansson. And what are we left with? Pictures. Each one providing its own proof. These pictures evoke the experience of thoughtful seeing, rather than describing. This effect is only enhanced by the book’s absence of narrative – a “story” being something that can only be overlaid in retrospect, after events have played out – which places one firmly in the here and now of direct contact with the world. Without resolved meanings to guide/restrict us, we are left alone, just to see. In American Winter, Gerry Johansson (and we, his fortunate readers) beholds nothing that is not there, and the nothing that is.”
