Chicago by Harry Callahan (1950)

The photograph titled “Chicago” was created by artist Harry Callahan in the year 1950. The image presents a serene winter scene featuring a row of trees bereft of leaves, standing stark against a blanket of snow. The background appears uniformly white, likely due to the snowfall, which creates a high-contrast effect with the dark silhouettes of the trees. The trees are placed symmetrically within the frame, their branches forming a delicate, intricate pattern against the overcast sky. The simplicity of the composition, along with the stark contrast between the black of the trees and the white snow-covered ground, gives the photograph a graphic quality and a sense of quiet isolation.
