A glance back in time 24. Juni 2013
Von Grady Harp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Harry Callahan (1912-1999) is regarded as one of the most innovative and influential artists in the history of 20th-century US photography. This book is a catalogue that accompanied a major exhibition in both Germany and in other countries.

Callahan left almost no written records--no diaries, letters, scrapbooks or teaching notes. His technical photographic method was to go out almost every morning, walk the city he lived in and take numerous pictures. He then spent almost every afternoon making proof prints of that day's best negatives. Yet, for all his photographic activity, Callahan, at his own estimation, produced no more than half a dozen final images a year. He photographed his wife and daughter and the streets, scenes and buildings of cities where he lived, showing a strong sense of line and form, and light and darkness. Even prior to the birth his daughter showed up in photographs of Eleanor's pregnancy. From 1948 to 1953 Eleanor, and sometimes Barbara, were shown out in the landscape as a tiny counterpoint to large expanses of park, skyline or water. He also worked with multiple exposures. Callahan's work was a deeply personal response to his own life. He encouraged his students to turn their cameras on their own lives, leading by example. Callahan photographed his wife over a period of fifteen years, as his prime subject. Eleanor was essential to his art from 1947 to 1960. He photographed her everywhere - at home, in the city streets, in the landscape; alone, with their daughter, in black and white and in color, nude and clothed, distant and close. He tried several technical experiments - double and triple exposure, blurs, large and small format film. Callahan was one of the few innovators of modern American photography noted as much for his work in color as for his work in black and white.

The book is organized chronologically and by presenting Callahan's photographs in the order in which they were produced opens a very simple look at the artist and especially his interest in the same set of themes he explored throughout his career: Life of and in the city, Nature abstracted, and Eleanor, his wife. The first color photographs appear early (1943), and they re-appear frequently throughout the book. Callahan possessed an immense clarity of vision. At the same time he was unafraid to re-explore something or to find something new. This book is a fine survey of Harry Callahan's work and it also re-affirms what photography truly is about: vision.

Craft, beauty sustained over a long career 15. August 2013
Von martin fritter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a catalog from a museum show and presents the pictures in strict chronology. I am not aware of Callahan publishing books or portfolios in his lifetime (e.g., "The Americans") which might have argued for a non-chronological presentation.

The quality of the reproductions is outstanding and the size is just fine - the largest plates measuring 5" x 8".

Callahan's is a restrained aesthetic, with no interest in grandeur and sweep - or shock value, for that matter. His color photography, starting in the '40s, is superb and was unknown to me. There is something of a fall-off in the later work, done after he retired from teaching and was traveling. But he continued to produce masterpieces into his seventies.

The essays are decent and the scholarly apparatus excellent: in German and English. Unfortunately, the English is printed in something of a lite taupe which makes it hard to read.

For a book of this quality recapitulating such an outstanding career, the price is a bargain.

November 30th. The recent death of Saul Leiter and the comments on his pioneering work in color caused me to revisit this book and especially the color plates. I've also been struggling with analogue color in my own photography. I realized that I was unfair in my assessment of Callahan's later work, which is better than I remembered. The pictures from Ireland are especially fine. I had thought the Morocco stuff weak, but I was wrong. It's just very different from the rest of his work.

Brilliant retropsective 5. September 2013

A photographer who chose to live life to the fullest 26. Januar 2015

Highly recommend this book by Harry Callahan. If you are a photographer who wants to find more personal meaning with your photography-- this is the book for you. In this book (through a series of illuminating essays)-- you can see that Harry Callahan was first interested in living life, and making photography an extension of that.

Harry taught me the importance of photographing whatever interests you (variation), the importance of photographing your loved ones (Eleanor), as well as staying infinitely curious.

The book is a fine collection of his best images, the essays are insightful, and the book is beautifully put together.

If you want to learn more about the book and the lessons I've learned from him, you can read my article on him:

Nice retrospective but print quality is sometimes disappointing 4. April 2014
Von ALBFRU - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The size of the color images included here are about 85% of those in Callahan's book New Color Photographs 1978-1987 and a side by side comparison shows that these in the Retrospective are not printed as crisply and there is some slight color variation. About 80% of the book is images with the rest devoted primarily to essays, biography, bibliography, and a detailed list of exhibited photographs. I have not yet read the essays. The images are mostly color which is a bit surprising since Callahan shot primarily black and white for the first 40 years of his career. The binding appears to be good. All in all I find this to be a good overview of Callahan's wonderful work.
