Harry Callahan (1912–1999) is considered one of the most innovative and influential American photographers of the 20th century. By lyrically enhancing the abstract tendencies of the "New Vision" movement, he transcended the predominant aesthetics of reportage realism. Right from his early days, Callahan saw photography as a purely artistic medium, considering himself an artist rather than a representative of applied photography.
The retrospective presents around 250 photographs, taken throughout a period of close to 60 years. They include landscapes and nature photography, views of shop windows, streets of houses and buildings, as well as pictures of people passing by. In addition, portraits of members of his family – his wife Eleanor in particular –, as well as pictures from trips to Europe, North Africa and South America, will be on display.
