Harry Callahan Photography Exhibit at National Gallery of Art in London

Harry Callahan (1912–1999) was one of the most innovative and influential photographers of the 20th century. Celebrating the centenary of his birth, the exhibition of some 100 photographs explores all facets of Callahan's art, from its genesis in Detroit in the early 1940s and its flowering in Chicago in the late 1940s and 1950s to its maturation in Providence and Atlanta from the 1960s through the 1990s. Throughout his long career, he repeatedly found new ways of looking at and presenting the world in photographs that are elegant, visually daring, and highly experimental.

  1. This shows looks pretty amazing. I think I have only seen his work within group settings. Would love to see some of his Chicago pieces in person.
