Harry Callahan (1912–1999) was one of the most influential American photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. Harry Callahan: The Street explores the artist’s lesser-known works, focusing on his black-and-white and colour street photographs.

The featured works are from a collection of 556 photographs that were gifted to the Vancouver Art Gallery by the Montreal-based Larry and Cookie Rossy Family Foundation. The collection is an exemplary representation of Callahan’s practice, featuring work that spans the entirety of the artist’s 60-year career. This gift marks the largest photography donation in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s history and is by far the most important collection of Callahan’s work in Canada, and the second largest public collection in the world.

To date, Harry Callahan’s work has been featured in over 60 solo exhibitions at institutions and galleries around the globe.
