Ernst Haas, master of the vibrant color photograph, illuminates his personal work

Ernst Haas is one of the best-known, most prolific and most published photographers of the 20th century. He is famed for his vibrant color style, which, for decades, was much in demand by the illustrated press. This work, published in the most influential magazines in Europe and America, also produced a constant stream of books, and these too enjoyed great popularity. But although his color work earned him international fame, in recent decades it has been derided as "overly commercial" or not sufficiently "serious." Yet there was a side of Haas’ work almost entirely hidden from view: parallel to his commissioned work, he made images independently, images far more edgy, loose, complex, ambiguous and radical than the work for which he is famed. Hass never printed these pictures in his lifetime, nor did he exhibit them, perhaps believing that they would not be understood or appreciated. This volume, intended to "correct" the record, compiles these photos of great complexity for the first time in print.
Ernst Haas (1921–86) was an Austrian-born artist who enjoyed a 40-year career as a photojournalist and creative photographer. A self-trained photographer, Haas first began to photograph his native Vienna in the aftermath of World War II. He published in various magazines before joining Magnum Photos, of which he would eventually become president. In 1950 Haas traveled to New York for a project and remained there for the rest of his life. The Museum of Modern Art presented a ten-year survey of his color photography in 1961—its first solo-artist retrospective dedicated to color work.

Ernst Haas: Color Correction, 1952–1986

"Bored with obvious reality, I find my fascination in transforming it into a subjective point of view. Without touching my subject I want to come to the moment when, through pure concentration of seeing, the composed picture becomes 'more made than taken.' Without a descriptive caption to justify its existence, it will speak for itself—less descriptive, more creative; less informative, more suggestive—less prose, more poetry." – Ernst Haas, 1961
