Photographers that inspire: Harry Callahan

Harry Callahan was one of the great photographers of the twentieth century. His images were diverse in subject but showed a very developed sense of relationships of objects within the frame, angles people (normally his wife and child) added for scale and shapes both colour and tone.

It is exceptionally hard to show a body of his work in a blog post, so if you like these images seek out one of the many excellent books.

As a body of work Harry's is astounding, from the simple shapes and almost graphic quality of his monochromes to the complex colour double exposures.
