QUOTE: Ernst Haas (1)
Ernst Haas (1921–1986) is acclaimed as one of the most important figures in 20th century photography and is considered a pioneering artist in colour photography. During his 40-year career, the Austrian-born artist bridged the gap between photojournalism and the use of photography as a medium for expression and creativity.
Haas was an early innovator in colour photography. His images were widely disseminated by magazines like Life and Vogue and, in 1962, were the subject of the first single-artist exhibition of colour photography at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
I find that this quote strongly resonates with me. Indeed, one of my catch phrases for an earlier version of my website referred to "revealing the inner essence of common objects and everyday life", something I still strive for today.
His estate still has prints for sale.
