Black, White & Abstract considers the work of three of the most important and inuential American photographers of the 20th century: Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, and Minor White.

Born within a decade of one another, Callahan, Siskind, and White each took up photography in the 1930s, with their work coming to the fore in the 1940s and 1950s as they embarked on long teaching careers. Although they worked primarily in black and white, they periodically experimented with color photography, especially Callahan. Each, in his own way, was interested in pursuing abstraction, though their work was always tied to representational subject matter. All three photographers were also intrigued by exploring formal and/or conceptual themes through series of photographs.
