1 CALLAHAN, Harry) WILLIAMS, Jonathan Aperture Masters of Photography Harry Callahan. First Printing in dustjacket
Aperture, New York, 1999, ISBN:0893818216 
(CALLAHAN, Harry). Harry Callahan. (New York) : Aperture, (1999). First Printing. Pp (1),2-95,(1). Illustrated in Black-and-White. Square 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Aperture Masters of Photography series. "Harry Callahan, known for his bold exploration of quotidian details and his innovative use of the abstract in photography, has created a career that spans many eras and lives. From his extended portrait of his wife, Eleanor, to his formal studies of architectural structures and his observation of abstract expressionist line in natural forms, Callahan's remarkable work has been central to the development of American photography. The influence of his labors is easily recognized in the work of many disparate genres of visual art. His photographic legacy continues on not only in the vibrancy of his own images, but in the unparalleled inspiration his teachinghas brought to many. Aperture's Masters of Photography series presents Cal lahan's most vital and lasting images, in addition to a number of photographs that have never been published before. The accompanying essay by Jonathan Williams, poet, essayist, and the publisher of Jargon Society books, provides a unique textual complement to the subtlety of Callahan's work and vision." (from the dustjacket). Very good slightly wrinkled dustjacket. 35.00
