About this title


Harry Callahan (1912-1999) was one of the most influential American photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. Harry Callahan: The Street explores the artist’s lesser-known works, focusing on his black-and-white and colour street photographs.

The featured works are from a collection of 556 photographs that were gifted to the Vancouver Art Gallery by the Montreal-based Larry and Cookie Rossy Family Foundation. The collection is an exemplary representation of Callahan’s practice, featuring work from throughout the artist’s 60-year career. This gift marks the largest photography donation in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s history and is by far the most important collection of Callahan’s work in Canada, and the second largest public collection in the world. These important additions to the gallery’s already remarkable photography collection will be unveiled to the public in an exhibition planned for 2016. Together with the publication of Harry Callahan: The Street, this exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of the photographer’s renowned 1976 retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. To date, Harry Callahan’s work has been featured in over 60 solo exhibitions at institutions and galleries around the globe.
