An introduction to Kenneth Josephson

Kenneth Josephson – Matthew, 1965

Kenneth Josephson, as surprising as it might seem (seeing as he is one of the masters behind conceptual photography), is not widely known. That is why we might start off by introducing you to the man himself. First of all, Josephson is an American photographer born in Detroit in 1932. He spent the majority of his life in Detroit, after graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rochester Institute of Technology (New York). He then got a master degree from the Institute of Design of the Illinois Institute of Technology. Although he is not a public figure, his photography skills were a knowledge by various grants such as the Guggenheim Fellowship grant. His photographs have been on the walls of many renowned museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City or the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris.
