A collection of photographs by Harry Callahan, whose interest in fine art photography was sparked by Ansel Adam's visit to the Detroit Camera Club in 1941. A celebrated photographer of nature, the city and women, Callahan explores new ways of looking at and presenting the world.

Photographer Callahan has been at the top of the list for half a century (he had his first one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948), and because his pictures have been so individual, so elegant, so purely seen, they are as fresh today as ever. The plainspoken Callahan decided early that photography could be the medium for "some set of values that I am trying to discover and establish as being my life." He has never focused on public themes, however, but on familiar landscape and one particular woman, his wife, Eleanor. Inspired as a young man by the spectacular images of Ansel Adams, Callahan nevertheless did not require sublime landscape as material. His visual poetry has come more often from a few blades of grass or a barren city street. A pure photographer, concerned with what he calls "the standard photographic problems" --focus, contrast, selection, motion, and multiple exposure--Callahan has maintained remarkable consistency of vision as well as a most individual voice. This book, cataloging a major retrospective exhibition, is the broadest overview of the art and the man. Even collections with much Callahan material (there is no dearth--he is well documented) should add this summative, definitive volume. Gretchen Garner
