John Gossage's work is about boundaries, both natural and man-made. A distance of only a few hundred feet can make a critical difference, as it does on the Mexican border near San Diego, where Gossage used a telephoto lens to take pictures of the Playa de Tijuana and the surrounding landscape. The resulting grainy black-and-white images remind us of the arbitrary nature of some borders and the inequality between those who spy and those who are spied upon. "There and Gone: Photographs by John Gossage" runs through Saturday, October 31, at Columbia College's Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S. Michigan; admission to the museum is free. Gossage will talk about his work on Thursday, October 15, at 6:30; admission to the lecture is $5, $3 for students. Call 312-663-5554 for more information.
