"He formed a generation of photographers in the United States. His artistic work is appreciated in particular by important colleagues: Not without cause did Stephen Shore use an image by Kenneth Josephson for the cover of his book, 'On Photography' " (Roland Angst). "For over 50 years, Josephson has been using photography to explore ideas about how we view reality. Formally trained under Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan, Josephson taught at the School of The Art Institute Chicago (SAIC) from 1960 to 1997. During his career, he produced an impressive array of work, ranging from stunning black-and-white prints to striking assemblages to humorous Polaroids. The result is not only an exciting explication of Josephson's endless curiosity, but also an important discussion of photography as a modern, flexible, and fully expressive artistic medium" (Sylvia Wolf). An absolute "must-have" title for Kenneth Josephson collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Kenneth Josephson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 90 tritone plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KENNETH JOSEPHSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $150.00
