"In 1956, photographer Harry Callahan (1912-1999), then director of photography at the Institute of Design in Chicago, USA, received a grant from the Graham Foundation, and on the advice of Edward Steichen, He traveled to Aix-en-Provence from September 1957 to July 1958 where he designed a series of studies on urban views, nature, and many portraits of his wife Eleanor.
