KENNETH JOSEPHSON on THE NEW YORK TIMES LENS BLOG.
Consider Kenneth Josephson: He was a pioneer in conceptual photography and is well-regarded in the history of medium. Yet at 83 years of age, he isn’t widely known to the general public. Fortunately, he seems to be having a late-career moment, with the release of a massive monograph, "The Light of Coincidence: The Photographs of Kenneth Josephson," from the University of Texas Press, and a solo exhibition at Gitterman Gallery in New York City, which runs until June 11.

KENNETH JOSEPHSON on PDN.
Taste in photography has gone through a couple of revolutions during the more than 50 years that Kenneth Josephson has been making photographs. Often labeled as a pioneer of conceptual photography, his work spans several genres, from early street studies that transformed Chicago under the El into abstract studies of light and dark, to pictures that use humor to question photography’s claims to depicting reality.

JEAN-PIERRE SUDRE show reviewed in COLLECTOR DAILY by Loring Knoblauch.
This survey show of the work of Jean-Pierre Sudre does just that – it reintroduces superlative examples of Sudre’s mordançage process and then places them in the larger context of the aesthetic choices he made during his artistic career. It’s an exhibit that gives us both the “what” of the innovative and obscure process and then surrounds it with the “why” of the evolving artistic intent.
