Kenneth Josephson: In Retrospect

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday April 09
Charles A. Hartman
134 NW 8th Ave.
 
Octogenarian photographer Kenneth Josephson has chronicled the course of American life and artistic thought for generations. His imagery is diverse: a light bulb hanging in the center of several photographs of light bulbs; a photo of the pyramids of Giza held in front of the Chicago skyline; a car racing underneath a bridge at night, the street lights heightened by multiple exposure. But Josephson’s studies of the body hold the most enduring relevance: an image of a pencil held clinically at a woman’s hips, like a cosmetic surgeon’s scalpel; and a prefab cutout of a breast, held up to an actual breast, as if for the purpose of comparison to an ideal. These images are archetypal and chilling. Through April 27.
