Great Black and White Photographers (Part 2)

Harry Callahan was a twentieth century photographer, born October 22, 1912. He was raised in Detroit, which probably sucked, and in 1938 started taking pictures. In 1941, Ansel Adams gave a speech that made Harry take his work a lot more seriously. On a daily basis he would go out and shoot pictures, then spend hours making proof prints of the ones he really liked. Even with this schedule, He only came out with around half a dozen pictures a year.  In 1946 he got a job teaching at the Institute of Design in Chicago, where he taught until he retired in 1977. He died in 1999
