"John Gossage made the images in Nothing during a month-long visit to The Kingdom in 1985 when he was the guest of a Saudi prince.
Describing Nothing, Gossage said, «You can sometimes go so far from home, and what you know, that your pictures have to teach you what they are about. In this case that process took almost thirty years.»
