    Harry Callahan: The Photographer at Work

    This exhibit for Callahan is at the Art Institute for those in /near Chicago. Hurry, it is only there for one more week. I just saw it today; I always liked Callahan in books, but seeing the originals of so many famous shots is something else. There are even the negatives of several famous Callahan shots - Trees - Lake Shore Drive, Elenore - Lake Michigan, and others; looking at the negatives (they are displayed on light boxes) you can see how Callahan chose to print them into their final famous versions most of the time he went very contrasty , and eliminated the detail in the neg. ALso shows how he "defied" Ansel and printed something very contrasty (I think it was "Weeds in snow.)
    Anyway, I'm not doing justice to the exhibit, or HC. If you
    like Callahan, (or even if you don't - this show may change yer mind) get down there before Sept. 24.

    There's also a book with the same title recently been published-looks well worth a look
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.

    Mr. Brunner do you have this detectives phone number? Is he dirty and hairy? I would like to hire him to see if Ms brim's conclusion of Mr blansky anatomy is correct. All that would be necessary would be to go to Blansky's code and give him a reverse zip.

    In deference to hijacking Ganymede's thread, I would like to say, that I was not altogether familiar with Callahan's work. I have checked out what I could find online, and I am a richer better person for the time and effort. I wish more actual exhibits came to Utah.

    CLAIRE! I think you have actually damaged my spleen!

    Unfortunately there are APUG members that only know about detective Harry Callahan and not the photographer.

    The Harold Callahan that I remember was a very effective shooter.
