Harry Callahan
American, 1912–1999
Follow

A highly influential artist and teacher, Harry Callahan produced photographs that combined elegant precision, sensuality, and restless experimentalism. He used the camera as a tool of personal expression, once proclaiming, “photography is an adventure just as life is an adventure.” He often turned his camera onto his own life, his wife serving as one of his most beloved and frequent subjects, her importance to his practice such that she was once called “an additional f-stop on his lens.” Constantly testing the limits of his medium, Callahan created photographs that surpassed factual representation, revealing the graphic beauty in the everyday. He taught alongside László Moholy-Nagy and earned the deep admiration of Edward Steichen, who included his work in several exhibitions.
