Award-winning critic, art historian, and AICA-USA member Max Kozloff has written extensively about photography for more than three decades. This fall two exhibitions of Kozloff’s photographs document how personal experience behind the viewfinder shaped an understanding of the photographic aesthetic that he outlined in books like Photography and Fascination (Addison House, 1980) and The Theatre of the Face (Phaidon, 2007).

 Visitors to the Art Institute of Chicago can see “Max Kozloff: Critic and Photographer,” a survey of more that 80 works that traces a career that began with his 1977 exhibition at Holly Solomon Gallery in New York City.  In New York City, Steven Kasher Gallery is presenting “Max Kozloff: New York Over the Top,” a pictorial homage to his home town.
