Words

Photographed by Chris Taylor and produced by Hassla Projects, The Life and Times of William Callahan is a 67-page, hardcover book comprising 35 colour offset plates and an essay by Paul Butler. The design and production value are exquisite, but, as you'd expect, it's the images and their subject that really make the book special. After an email to Drag City, Bill Callahan's longtime record label, and a meeting with the musician himself, it was agreed that Chris would photograph him and his surrounding environment in Austin, Texas every other day for a month. This kind of access was something of a coup and Chris has been careful not to reveal too much of his notoriously private subject – his imagery showing just enough to perpetuate the myth.
