Harry CALLAHAN, O.E. MOMA New York, 1967 SIGNED

Harry CALLAHAN, O.E. MOMA New York, 1967 SIGNED

Description :

This catalog proposed here in a dedicated and signed copy is the Harry Callahan's first important book.

Harry Callahan (1912-1999) is a greatamerican photographer. He buys his first camera in 1938 and adheres to the photo-club of Detroit. Talented self-taught, Callahan discovers, fascinated, the work of Ansel Adams during a conference organized in 1941. From 1946 and during thirty years he will teach to his pupils to look for the purity of the expression. His themes of preference are closely linked to its personal life, to the city in which he lives, to his wife and To his family as well as to the nature which surrounds him or in the journeys which he makes (in Venice, in France either in Ireland). In its work, Callahan puts practically always the accent on forms and lines of force perceived by its look as well as the contrast and the luminosity. He also practises multiple exposures techniques and the color photo that he had begun to use from 1941 but that he will have a practice exclusively from 1977.

This catalog contains three of the parties: Eleanor his wife), The city (Cicago, Providence, New York) and Landscape.

Paperback edition with illustrated cover(blanket), 84 pages and 60 photos in black and white. John Szarkowki's foreword, introductory essai by Paul Shermann, chronology and bibliography. Inscribed to Yvette Troispoux, a french photographer.
