The Rossy Family Foundation of Montreal donated more than 550 works by photographer Henry Callahan to the Vancouver Art Gallery. The Gallery will now house the second largest public collection of the artist's work. Detroit-born Callahan evolved as a photographic hobbyist and eventually, after experiencing the work and presence of Ansel Adams, took the practice up professionally. He later went on to become an Instructor at the Institute of Design and head of the Photography Department at the ID. He is known for several styles and bodies of work, among them architectural images rendered in high-contrast and with geometric lines, multiple exposures, and intimate shots from his own private life.
