Engineer-turned-photographer Harry Callahan (American, 1912–1999) made significant contributions to the development of black and white photography in the 20th century. Compelled by a lecture given by Ansel Adams in 1941, Callahan turned away from his work at Chrysler to pursue photography fully, having joined the company photography club three years previously. Callahan’s wife, Eleanor, became a principal subject, and in 1961 Callahan moved from New York to Rhode Island, establishing a photography program at the Rhode Island School of Design. His expertise in multiple-exposure techniques is arguably unparalleled to this day.
