In this exhibition of work by photographer Harry Callahan (1912-1999) exists predominantly documentation of architecture and its varying surfaces in the streets of his surroundings.
It is Callahan’s images of natural forms which are bought into abstraction which are of particular interest. The linear forms are like delicate and manually formed drawings which capture horizontals and verticals.
Within the four rooms of the display verticals and horizontals both natural and mechanical are captured and presented in black frames with white mount board in typical photography standard. Each of the rooms focuses on a different aspect of Callahan’s work with subject matter ranging from; streets, architecture, nature and his wife Eleanor (is Eleanor a motif?).
Harry Callahan exhibition is on display between 9th December until 31st May 2014 at Tate Modern.
