Jan 24 – Mar 28, 2020
Gitterman Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of photographic work by Kenneth Josephson from 1960 to 1980 that invites overlapping dialogues on a variety of concepts. He explores the complex relationship of image and object, photographic truth and illusion, time, spatial perspective, even the history of photography itself. Josephson challenges our perceptions and invites us to consider different perspectives, while maintaining a strong sense of humor and wonder that makes his work both accessible and distinctive.
Throughout his career, Josephson has been interested in the photograph as both an image and an object and accordingly has used a variety of techniques to create different types of objects. This exhibition brings together photographic prints printed from negatives as well as those made directly on paper in the camera; photographs of pictures within pictures; photographs of objects set within those objects; montages of super 8 film; a photogram of an object collaged with that object; collages of photographs and postcards of the same place but from different time periods; self-portraits with his shadow and even a self-portrait from a photo booth.
… In 1963 he became a founding member of the Society for Photographic Education, and in 1964 his work was included in John Szarkowski’s exhibition, “The Photographer’s Eye,” which traveled internationally to forty venues from 1964 to 1972.
