James D. Gossage Photograph Collection

Thematic Collection

This collection contains photographs, contact sheets, and negatives all by James Gossage. Gossage is a prolific stage photographer, who worked at a number of the original Off Off-Broadway venues, including La MaMa, Caffe Cino, and the Circle Repertory Company. Gossage has donated a large number of his negatives and prints to the La MaMa Archive, and this collection continues to grow as more photographs are donated, processed and digitized.

There is some overlap in this collection with the photographs held by the New York Public Library (https://archives.nypl.org/the/21426). In those cases of overlap, copyright to the images is held by the NYPL Performing Arts Library. When La MaMa holds the copyright, it is also noted.
