“I do believe strongly in photography and hope by following it intuetively that when the photographs are looked at they will touch the spirit in people”. With this declaration of intent opens the sequence of Harry Callahan: COLOR 1941-1980, a magnificent collection of the American master’s first four decades of colour photographic work.

Best known for his elegant black-and-white photographs, in this rich and beautifully printed volume, Callahan reveals a discerning and refined eye for colour: his production ranges from landscape to street photography, including abstract and textured photographic experiments.
Callahan’s language is reminiscent of that of other famous authors such as Lee Friedlander, Luigi Ghirri and Paul Graham, whose visual research was probably influenced by the fine and rigorous vision of their American predecessor.
