Girl Combing Hair, Chicago, 1959, Kenneth Josephson

Gitterman Gallery, this spring, will be hosting one of the Midwest’s finest photographer progeny. Kenneth Josephson has been celebrated for his adept plethora of skills within photography, often extrapolating various characteristics of the medium with great effect.

Kenneth Josephson was born in Detroit in 1932. He began his formal photography training at the Rochester Institute of Technology, earning an Associate’s Degree before being drafted into the army in 1953, where he spent several months in Germany doing photolithography for aerial reconnaissance. He returned to R.I.T. immediately after to earn his B.F.A., where he studied under Minor White and Beaumont Newhall. Josephson started his graduate studies at the Institute of Design in 1958 and studied under Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. After graduating in 1960, Josephson became an influential instructor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he taught for almost forty years.

Josephson’s work is featured in numerous collections around the world. He has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Whitney Museum of American Art; and most recently at the Denver Art Museum. This exhibition coincides with the publication of a retrospective monograph, The Light of Coincidence: The Photographs of Kenneth Josephson, published by the University of Texas Press.

The exhibit will open on Wednesday, April 6th, from 6-8pm and conclude Saturday, June 11th.
