Kenneth Josephson

Kenneth Josephson was born in 1932 in Detroit, USA. He lives and works in Chicago.

He began taking pictures at an early age with his family’s automatic camera and in 1960 was part of the first generation of photography graduates at the Illinois Institute of Design, where he studied under Harry Callahan. Josephson, who is perhaps best known for his series Images within Images, often takes the medium itself as his subject, and plays on reality and reproduction in an intelligent commentary on photography’s relationship to truth and illusion. In 1972, he was awarded a Guggenheim scholarship.
