Harry Callahan, Photographs. El Mochuelo Gallery, Santa Barbara, California, 1964. Only edition; limited to 1500 copies. Small folio. Black cloth with silver lettering; matching cloth slipcase. Introductory statement by Hugo Weber + 126 full-page tritone and duotone plates on coated stock + extensive 9 pp. bibliography.

Early in his life Callahan studied engineering and worked in the photography labs of General Motors, but when he met Moholy-Nagy in 1946 he decided to make artistic photography his career. This book, published by an art gallery at a time when large publishers were not supporting such deluxe photographic book projects, remains the most sought after monograph of Callahan's work. Emphasis is on his minimalist nature studies, elegantly modern images of his wife Eleanor, city street scenes, and multiple image experiments. The plates were printed by The Meriden Gravure Company. Increasingly scarce. Included in Roth, The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century, pp. 168 - 169.

A very fine copy, except for the usual discoloration of the endsheets (apparently caused by the use of non-archival glue).
