THE LIGHT OF COINCIDENCE: THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF KENNETH JOSEPHSON. Kenneth Josephson et al. University of Texas Press, Austin, 2016. 344 pp. with 255 ills. (17 col.). 31 x 29 cm. LC 2015-28437 ISBN 9781477309384 In English.
Publisher's description: 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.
