We went to see the Callahan show of about 50 pictures at the MFA yesterday. It was a perfect way to close out (visually) 2009. Becky suggested that Callahan had quite an influence on my work: GUILTY. A couple of pictures stood out: a woman on the street in Chicago in a very light green coat and hat probably from the early 50s; a four panel grid of tree limbs looking up form Atlanta in 1993. Marvelous pictures. Yes, Harry was (remains) quite an influence.
