Harry Callahan, Acme Sign Shop, Providence, 1977

Like Walker Evans, Callahan was fascinated by signs—both their physical presence and their cultural significance. Well known for his black-and-white Chicago street photography and intimate portraits of his wife Eleanor, his early color work has not received the attention it deserves. ICP’s collection has a selection of dye transfer prints made in the late 1970s.
