“Photography is an adventure just as life is an adventure,” Harry Callahan has stated. “If man wishes to express himself photographically, he must understand, surely to a certain extent, his relationship to life.” Looking then at this adventure, this remarkably clear and straightforward life, the pictures... tell the story of Harry Callahan is his work. And therein lies his legend. --Arno Rafael Minkkinen
Harry Callahan, known for his bold exploration of quotidian details and his innovative use of the abstract in photography, has created a career that spans many eras and lives. From his extended portrait of his wife, Eleanor, to formal studies of architectural structures and his observation of abstract expressionist line in natural forms, Callahan's work has been central to the development of American photography. His legacy endures in the vibrancy of his images and the inspiration his teaching has brought to many.

About the Author:

Harry Callahan was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1912. A self-taught photographer, Callahan began his career at twenty-six and immediately earned artistic credibility that continues to thrive today. His tenure at Chicago's Institute of Design (1946-64) and later, the Rhode Island School of Design (1961-77), helped to establish the study and practice of photography as a formal academic discipline in the United States. Callahan has been awarded a grant from the John Solomon Guggenheim Foundation, the Graham Foundation Award for advanced studies in fine arts, and the National Medal of Arts.

Review:

"'Photography is an adventure just as life is an adventure,' Callahan has stated. 'If man wishes to express himself photographically, he must understand, surely to a certain extent, his relationship to life.' Looking then at this adventure, this remarkably clear and straightforward life, the pictures, every one of them, tell the story. Harry Callahan is his work. And therein lies his legend."--Arno Rafael Minkkinen
