"Kenneth Josephson: A Retrospective"
1999-09-25 until 2000-01-16
The Art Institute of Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

September 25, 1999-January 16, 2000 Photography Galleries 1, 2, 3, and 4 Kenneth Josephson (born 1932) studied photography with Minor White at the Rochester Institute of Technology and was among the first generation of photographers to graduate with a degree in photography from the Illinois Institute of Design, where he studied with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan. As a teacher at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for over 35 years (he retired in 1997), Josephson has spawned two generations of photographic artists.

The exhibition contains 125 of Josephsons works. Altering perspective, scale, and point of view, Josephson was once hailed as a leader of conceptual photography in the late 1960s and 1970s. His photographs examine the act of picture-making and offer playful commentary on photographic truth and illusion. In addition, Josephson has made numerous images that take Indias street life, light, and European landscape as his primary object. Now at age 67, Josephson is producing photographs with a meditative quality. In their beauty and serenity, they bear the mark of an artist with long experience. Curator: Sylvia Wolf, associate curator of photography, The Art Institute of Chicago Sponsor: The exhibition has been funded in part by LaSalle National Bank, American Airlines, and the Lannan Foundation.
