ERNST HAAS – THE ART OF SEEING
Ernst Haas (1921-1986) was a pioneer. He received both the first color feature in Life Magazine and the first one-person show of color photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His book The Creation, which I purchased in 1976, was the reason I decided to become a photographer. I later joined him for a workshop in Japan for two weeks during the summer of 1984. The 2019 video link below revisits my mentor’s interviews and films that show his way of seeing.
