About

Eleanor, Port Huron - Harry Callahan (Black and White Photography) Signed, titled and dated on reverse of mount Silver gelatin print, mounted on board, printed before 1964 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches Harry Callahan's wife, Eleanor Knapp, was one of his most frequent subjects and a constant source of creative inspiration. Callahan met Knapp on a blind date in 1933 when both worked for Chrysler in Detroit: she as a secretary and he as a clerk in the parts department. They were married within three years of meeting. Callahan took up photography shortly after their marriage, and from the very start of his career Eleanor was his central model and muse. This present photograph is exemplary of Callahan’s mastery of light, form and composition, and his ability to anchor Eleanor’s body at the centre of it all. Eleanor’s delicately illuminated thigh aligns perfectly with the line of the roof’s gable. Pattern and texture are also handled expertly in this photograph, the textures are rich and tangible and the varying patterns are lyrically interwoven throughout the composition. This print is a rare vintage print, sourced from the Harry Callahan estate.
