Item Description: Austin, TX: University Of Texas Press, 2016. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 20 pages. Published in 2016. Collection of photographs, presented as an Artist Book. One of the most important Conceptual art photography books of our time, in a New Edition. Limited Edition of 250 signed copies. Published as a softcover original only that will not be reissued once all of the copies are sold. An austerely elegant production by Kenneth Josephson and Only Photography Press: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Kenneth Josephson. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Berlin, Germany to the highest standards. The photographer himself has said that the production quality is superior to the original edition in the way that it captures the tonal nuances which, of course, is the whole point of the book. Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in a Limited Edition format, Kenneth Josephson's "The Bread Book". Pioneering Conceptual art photography at its Minimalist best, long before Minimalism itself became a full-fledged and dominant movement. "A deceptively simple object - photographs of the fronts and backs of ten slices of bread with no accompanying text - this Artist Book raises questions about the nature of photography and its ability to transform an object into an idea or concept while creating yet another object: The book itself. The result of this act of transformation is that the original loaf no longer functions as a loaf of bread, but as a self-contained book that considers the ideas of sequence and illusion" (Publisher's blurb). "A monument of the photobook. It's the book itself that is the work of art, not the individual images. Like most of the best Conceptual photography, the idea is devastatingly simple on the surface yet infinitely complex when you look beyond the surface" (Gerry Badger). Originally published in an edition of 1800 copies, "The Bread Book" has been out-of-print for a very long time. Here it is, in a production that Kenneth Josephson himself regards as definitive and superior to its original realization. An absolute "must-have" title for Kenneth Josephson collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on the Back Cover by Kenneth Josephson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a late-modern art photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command between $150 and $500. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 20 plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A flawless copy.

Item Description: Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2003. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 32 pages. Published in 2003. Landmark Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. Precedes and should not be confused with the book-length centenary book, "Siskind 100", published in October 2003. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. A brilliant production by David W. Williams: Regular-sized volume format. Pristine-white softcovers, as issued. Photographs by Aaron Siskind. Introduction by Stephen Daiter. Text contributions by Barbara Crane, Jed Fielding, Joseph Jachna, Kenneth Josephson, Kazimir Karpuszko, and Joseph Sterling, who were all students of Aaron Siskind, and are now among the finest American photographers of our time. List of Plates appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The printing quality is outstanding, worthy of the work that it celebrates. In integral pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine and very large flaps, as issued. Published on the occasion of the photographer's centenary exhibition held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from May 2 through June 28, 2003 in conjunction with the Galerie Francoise Paviot Paris, where the show travelled on in November 2003. Presents "Aaron Siskind: Order With The Tensions Continuing". Abstract photographs from the late 1940's to the early 1960's by the one photographer who is credited with having brought photography into the 20th century. The title comes from one of Aaron Siskind's most celebrated works. Siskind started out as a documentary photographer and was one of the finest photographers associated with The Photo League, which aimed to marry street and art photography with social concerns and moral conscience. It is also widely acknowledged, however, that his most important artistic output resulted from his crucial shift to Abstract Expressionism. The Abstract Expressionists considered Siskind's abstract photographs not only to be on the same level as their work in the traditional media (primarily, painting). Precisely because Siskind continued to work in photography, he introduced a whole new dimension to the Movement that they themselves did not conceive possible, and Siskind consequently influenced them as much as they influenced him. These photographs are now between 40 and 60 years old, but they have lost none of their cutting-edge vitality, breadth of imagination, and formal elegance. They are "at once sensual, intellectual, and spiritual, and provide a powerful expression of his artistic vision" (Stephen Daiter). An absolute "must-have" title for Aaron Siskind collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on their respective Contributions by Barbara Crane, Kenneth Josephson, Kazimir Karpuszko, and Joseph Sterling. It is signed directly on the pages themselves, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such multi-signed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 21 tonally rich reproductions. One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER AARON SISKIND TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

Item Description: Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2012. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 37 pages. Published in 2012. Rare Barack Obama, Dawoud Bey, Kenneth Josephson, and Paul D'Amato collectible item. Exhibition/Auction Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare. Published on the occasion of the fund-raiser exhibition held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery in July, 2012. Presents "Artists For Obama: Exhibition Sale And Auction To Support The Re-Election of President Barack Obama". Fundraiser by artists for the beloved President. Thirty-six art and photographic works are shown in the catalog out of almost 100 pieces that were donated by artists, photographers, Chicago galleries, dealers, and collectors to raise funds for President Obama's re-election campaign versus Mitt Romney. All of the proceeds were given to President Obama's campaign. Aside from donating works, Stephen Daiter Gallery and other (passionate) volunteers donated their space, time, and effort so no one was paid (as the people who work for political campaigns or charitable causes/foundations are). Artists often make political statements. But with few exceptions, they seldom take an explicitly partisan stand. This was one such partisan issue that united numerous artists, whose donation of their work amounted to making a statement and taking a stand. The artists are a Who's Who of contemporary art and photography, too numerous to mention here. They include foreign artists with deep ties to America such as the late great Yasuhiro Ishimoto, among many others. Two examples: The cover shows a formal portrait of President Obama by Dawoud Bey. And there is a stunning black-and-white photograph by Marc PoKempner that deserves to be better-known: "Alley Ball, 1995", which shows a very young (and completely unknown) Obama playing basketball with a group of kids during his first campaign, as a candidate for the Illinois Legislature, more than ten years before he rose to national prominence and eventually, the Presidency. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Barack Obama, Dawoud Bey, Kenneth Josephson, and Paul D'Amato collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on his portrait of President Obama in front by Dawoud Bey. It is signed directly on the Front Cover itself, not on a tipped-in page. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed on their respective Contributions by Kenneth Josephson and Paul D'Amato. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such multi-signed copy of the Exhibition/Auction Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 36 black-and-white and color plates. Some of the greatest artists and photographers of our time. A fine copy.

Item Description: Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 55 pages. Published in 2012. Memorial collection of photographs. One of the most beautiful art photography books of our time. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original. There was, simultaneously, a Softcover Edition. Both editions are now rare. An austerely elegant production by The Stephen Daiter Gallery and Kenneth Josephson: Oversize-volume format. Gray cloth boards with photographic reproduction of "Matthew" pasted in front and metallic-silver titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Kenneth Josephson. Text by David F. Travis. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Kenneth Josephson's "Matthew". Portraits of his first-born son Matthew, taken from birth through childhood. Matthew died in a tragic car accident at the age of 17. Josephson never again photographed his two other children (who appear with their brother in some of the portraits, and are now adults) after that. "The beauty of this body of work is that it combines the personal and the universal, the private and the public, art and life, the intellectual and emotional, the present and the past, in a very effective and moving manner. What these pictures make clear is the interconnectedness of it all: Living, loving, nurturing, creating, experimenting, seeing, thinking, and remembering" (David F. Travis). "Matthew" (the Cover Image) was selected by John Szarkowski as one of the iconic photographs of our time in "Looking At Photographs" (1973), his ground-breaking and immensely influential selection of 100 photographs from the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Permanent Collection. An absolute "must-have" title for Kenneth Josephson collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the Back Copyright Page by Kenneth Josephson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is Paul Berlanga, the Chicago-based photography expert and important artist/painter. This title is a late-modern art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The other signed copy is also from us. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KENNETH JOSEPHSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0984574948. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 21062

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.

Presents "The Light of Coincidence: The Photographs of Kenneth Josephson". A sumptuous retrospective on a great photographer. Preceded only by the eponymous volume published by the Art Institute of Chicago 17 years ago, in 1999, here is the definitive retrospective of his body of work. "One of the foremost Conceptual photographers in America. Since the early 1960's, 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 being observing the world. Beautifully reproduces representative selections from '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) and 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). An absolute "must-have" title for Kenneth Josephson collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (before publication), and inscribed in black ink-pen on the half-title page by the photographer: "1 April 2016 Dear Paul, Thank you for all the support and encouragement given to me. I am so happy to have the opportunity to work with you. I value this very much, Ken" [Kenneth Josephson's famous nickname]. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is Paul Berlanga, the Chicago-based photography expert and important artist/painter. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Opening Night Souvenir. This title is an instant art photography classic.
