Harry Callahan: Eleanor and Barbara

LISTED UNDER: Photography

Summary

This film documents Harry Callahan, one of the great masters of twentieth-century photography. Known for his repertoire of subjects - wife Eleanor, nature, the city - he produced a lifetime of work, which continues to influence a generation.

Recognized for the quiet elegance of his pictures, Callahan's consistent formalism and perceivable love for his subjects has created numerous classic images that stand as hallmarks in the medium.

Highlighted in the film is the extended portrait of Callahan's family, from the mid-1940s until the 1960s. Recalling their experiences are the photographer, as well as Eleanor, his principal subject, and Barbara, his daughter.
