Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 332 pages. Published in 2016. Valedictory Exhibition Monograph. The "summing-up" book on the photographic art of Kenneth Josephson. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. An austerely elegant production by The University of Texas Press: Oversize-volume format. The book weighs a hefty 6 pounds. Black cloth boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Kenneth Josephson. Essays by Lynne Warren and Gerry Badger. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is superb, and even more important, the images are reproduced to the same size as the original prints. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from April through June, 2016. Presents "The Light of Coincidence: The Photographs of Kenneth Josephson". The sumptuous, valedictory retrospective on the 83-year-old photographer, preceded only by the eponymous volume published by the Art Institute of Chicago seventeen years ago, in 1999: The definitive, career-spanning retrospective of the photographer's body of work. "One of the foremost Conceptual photographers in America. Since the early 1960's, when institutions such as MOMA privileged photography in the documentary mode, Josephson has championed the photograph as an object made, not taken, by an artist pursuing an idea. Using innovative techniques such as placing images within images and including his own body in photographs, Josephson has created an outstanding body of work that is startlingly contemporary and full of ideas that stimulate the digital generation: Ideas about the nature of seeing, of reality, and of human aspirations, and about what it means to be a human observing the world. Beautifully reproduces representative selections from Josephson's best-known 'Images Within Images'. Places Josephson's art in historical context, from his early studies with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan at the Institute of Design and with Minor White at the Rochester Institute of Technology to his mature work, which shares affinities with that of Conceptual artists such as Cindy Sherman and Ed Ruscha to his shaping influence on generations of students at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago, where he taught for over thirty-five years" (Publisher's blurb). "He has explored in a thoroughly creative and complex, yet accessible, way the perhaps narrow but infinitely deep gap between actuality and image" (Gerry Badger). An absolute "must-have" title for Kenneth Josephson collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the half-title page by Kenneth Josephson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title will become an art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tritone plates. One of the finest photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.

Synopsis:

Kenneth Josephson is one of the foremost conceptual photographers in America. Since the early 1960s, when institutions such as MoMA privileged photography in the documentary mode, Josephson has championed the photograph as an object "made," not taken, by an artist pursuing an idea. Using innovative techniques such as placing images within images and including his own body in photographs, Josephson has created an outstanding body of work that is startlingly contemporary and full of ideas that stimulate the digital generation?ideas about the nature of seeing, of "reality," and of human aspirations, and about what it means to be a human observing the world.

The Light of Coincidence is the definitive, career-spanning retrospective of Kenneth Josephson's work and one of the few volumes ever published on this major artist. Josephson has worked in series over long periods of time, and this book beautifully reproduces representative selections from every series, including Josephson's best-known Images within Images. Lynne Warren places Josephson's art in historical context, from his early studies with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan at the Institute of Design and with Minor White at the Rochester Institute of Technology, to his mature work, which shares affinities with that of conceptual artists such as Cindy Sherman and Ed Ruscha, to his shaping influence on generations of students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he taught for over thirty-five years. Preeminent photo historian Gerry Badger's foreword confirms Josephson's stature as an artist who has explored "in a thoroughly creative and complex, yet accessible, way, the perhaps narrow but infinitely deep gap between actuality and image."

About the Author: Kenneth Josephson has participated in numerous exhibitions, and his works are in major museums around the world, including the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; the Center for Creative Photography; the George Eastman House; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Modern Art; the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as countless private collections.
