Description

In this detail of undulating grasses in Wisconsin, Callahan demonstrated his vigorous interest in formal design and his sensitivity toward the world around him, making the artist one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. This compelling abstract composition is filled with arching, bending, and swaying slivers of form, made distinguishable from the dark ground by bright sunlight.
