dc.description“Nearly fifteen years ago, when the first parts of the Harry Callahan Archive began arriving at the Center, Callahan sent along some of his very early work on loan. We processed the loan and stored it, and probably no one ever asked to see these photographs until John Pultz did. Pultz was fascinated with a series of photographs of women's heads, made on the streets of Detroit with a handheld camera in the early forties. Callahan had mounted some of them at whatever angle was necessary to restore the horizon line to a position parallel to the top and bottom of the mount board. Pultz's fascination with this early series was contagious, and an issue of The Archive was proposed. Callahan agreed and graciously made the photographs a gift to the Center. And so it is fitting that we dedicate this issue to Harry Callahan, who has devoted a half century of his life to photography and who has made an indelible, yet sensitive, mark on the medium.” (From the director’s statement for the Archive, no. 28.)
