Life and work[edit]

Gordon is best known for producing large color photographs that operate somewhere between collage and set-up photography. His work, as described by the New York Times, "Involves creating figurative tableaus from cut paper and cut-out images that Mr. Gordon then photographs. In addition, he seems motivated by a deeply felt obsession with the human body and the discomforts of having one."[1]

He has exhibited his work in solo exhibitions at Zach Feuer Gallery,[2] Wallspace,[3] and Leo Koenig, Inc., Projekte[4] in New York City and Claudia Groeflin Gallery in Zürich, Switzerland.[5] Gordon has been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art,[6] the Saatchi Gallery[7] in London, Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois, and he was included in MoMA PS1's[8] Greater New York 2010. He is the author of Portrait Studio (onestar press, 2009)[9] and Flying Pictures (powerHouse books, 2009).[10] His work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art,[11] New York. Gordon was a guest lecturer at Sarah Lawrence College in 2009.
