Nature by Harry Callahan,Sarah Greenough

This excellent collection of Callahan's photographs accompanies a national tour of his work. Curator Greenough's (Robert Frank: Moving Out, LJ 10/15/94) decision to arrange the images chronologically works well to illustrate both the themes central to the photographer's aesthetic and his development as an artist. From early experiments using multiple exposures and light painting to the most recent color cityscapes, Callahan has sought to explore photography's potential. He often returned again and again to the same subject in a quest for yet a new way to "see" it via the camera

This book brings together a selection of Harry Callahan's nature studies, twelve intimately scaled prints assembled into a special series by the artist in the early 1990s. Over the course of a career that spanned six decades, Callahan made nature one his primary themes, continually finding new ways of seeing trees, weeds, snow, and surf. Ranging in date from 1941 to 1991, these images typify the artists innovative approach to these subjects as well as his stated desire to capture a moment that people cant always see.

Curator Sarah Greenough has argued that Callahan’s act of revisiting his subjects was a way of challenging himself ‘to see and learn from that which is often most difficult to truly see and appreciate – the familiar, the ever present and the previously explored’ (Sarah Greenough, ‘The Art of Seeing’, in National Gallery of Art 1996, . 4)

"Callahan did somehow arrive quickly at the sure knowledge that the function of his own work was to describe not the public issues of the great world, but the interior shape of his private experience." John SzarkowskiNature is a selection of Harry Callahan's nature studies, 12 intimately scaled prints that the artist assembled into a series in the early 1990s, herein reproduced as beautiful tipped-in plates. Over the course of a career that spanned six decades, Callahan made nature of one his foremost themes, and continually researched new ways of seeing trees, weeds, snow and surf. Ranging in date from 1941 to 1991, these images are typical of the artist's innovative approach to these subjects, as well as of his intention to "capture a moment that people can't always see." Some images give a striking description of surface detail on natural forms, while others reduce those forms to compelling abstract patterns. Consistent throughout the series is the technical refinement that distinguishes Callahan's style and that has secured his place among the foremost American photographers of the twentieth century.
Reviews: 3
Callahan is one of the masters. Not as well known as he should be, I think. Very nice reproductions but only about twenty are included.
I am a big fan of Harry Callahan's photography, so I was really looking forward to getting this book. However,there is not enough substance in the way of pages, text or images in this book, to make it worth buying. The images that are included are very small. I would not have purchased this book if I had seen it before buying.
Nature While this is a small book, the selection of images and the printing are excellent. Callahan liked to make contact prints, even from 2 1/4 negatives and seeing his images small makes me think about how he enjoyed their tone and texture. The images are accompanied by interesting quotes, some by Callahan. I only wish the texts were printed in darker ink; the gray ink is a bit hard to read.
