The Alienated Photographer

“Kalisher’s images are razor-sharp and always shrewdly graphic…sequenced here with sophistication, they flesh out issues of the time: race, class, politics, religion, anxiety, alienation” said Peter C. Bunnell (Professor of the history of Photography Emeritus Princeton University) in his evaluation of the book. 

“The Alienated Photographer” by internationally renowned fine art photographer Simpson Kalisher is being released in a limited quantity first edition printing this summer, timed to coincide with his new solo exhibit at the Museum of Fine Art, Houston.

 Kalisher, who turns 85 this July,  spent much of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s shooting in New York, calls this new collection his finest hour. “I spent years reviewing my contact sheets,” Kalisher said, “understanding what I was doing with the camera, and making  a selection that is a statement about the time we live in, about photography and, clearly, about what photography has meant to me.”
