Transcript 16 Montrose Voice / May 14,1982 MontroseArt Harry Callahan proves photography is an art Photostory by Ed Martinez Photography is a visual art. It does not pretend to be a plastic art, which it isn't. It begins with certain "giv- ens," which the plastic arts do not. But within those limitations, which are not really so much limitations as they are parameters of the photographic art, the endless possibilities for conceptualizing visual images stretch to the very limits of man's artistic creativity. Photography is also a very new art form, dating from the middle years of the last century, with the work of Brady, Morse. Daguerre and the early pioneers of photography. Some of the very finest photographers who ever lived are still living, and still working. It is somewhat analogous to having a Da Vinci or a Michelangelo still alive and working today in sculpture or painting. Ansel Adams, for example, unquestionably one of the finest photographic artists who has ever or will ever live, continues to work to this very day, vigorously, spewing out vast fountains of protean creativity, sharing all that he learns as he learns it with whoever has time to listen to him. Alfred Stieglitzin still alive and still vigorous, one of the pre-eminent photo- journalists of our time. In spite of all this incredible talent on every side in this very young, historically speaking, art form, photography still has yet to be anything like fully accepted by the art world as a valid art form. The reasons are many, and do not really deserve much discussion. The fact is that there has been an explosion of interest in photography since even World War II, with the invention of real- tively cheap, reliable and very high quality 35 millimeter single lens reflex cameras. Japan seized the lead in the manufacture of these cameras from Germany after the war, and their sales have been booming ever since. One result of so much popular interest in photography has been the appreciation of the artists in the world of photography, one of whom is the photographer Harry Callahan. He is one of those very fine photographic artists who started working seriously in photography in the early 40s. Callahan met and became associated with Adams, Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and others, and had exhibits at the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum, and The Light Gallery in New York. He has won a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the only Graham Foundation Award ever given to a photographer. Mr. Callahans' awards and honors are literally too numerous to be listed, but it is in his latest work, from 1968 to the present, where his talent reaches its full flower. Harry Callahan has published several books on his photography, the latest of which, Harry Callahan-Color, was published in 1980, and forms the title of this show through June 5 at the Clemons Gallery, 803 Marshall. Callahans' work is characterized by technical excellence that one quickly comes to take for granted, which is a pity. All the years that Mr. Callahan spent learning his craft result, ironically, in that craftsmanship seeming natural, in being almost assumed in his photographs. The colors in this show, many seen in Houston for the first time, are intensely vivid, and the eye for composition that utilized the colors throws them out to the viewer. The works in this show are so very advanced and timeless that they establish firmly the place that photography has at long last and with such difficulty been awarded: a place in the fine arts. These works by Callahan are without doubt fine works of art that will live as long as man appreciates that which is beautiful. Houston is fortunate to have a gallery like the Clemons Gallery devoted to fine photography. More and more galleries across the country are springing up, devoted solely to the art of photography, and to fostering the interest of art lovers in this new and very vital art form. Houstonians deserve the opportunity to see these fine works that are currently and regularly being shown at this gallery.
