Photographs by Harry Callahan and Robert Frank

September 9 – 30


The exhibition of sixty-six works comes direct from the Museum of Modern Art show organized earlier this year by Edward Steichen, Director of the Museum’s Department of Photography. Callahan’s work is based on street scenes and nature themes. He was formerly head of the Photography Department, Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology; and is now Associate Professor of Photography at the Rhode Island School of Design. Frank’s photographs were made in London, Wales, Peru, New York, Detroit, Las Vegas and Hoboken. Frank, who was born in Switzerland and came to America in 1947, has also made two films—“Pull My Daisy” and “The Sin of Jesus.”
