NEW YORK CITY 
NEW YORK IN COLOUR, 1952-1962 

Ernst Haas’s colour works reveal the photographer’s remarkable genius and remind us on every page why we love New York. When Ernst Haas moved from Vienna to New York City in 1951, he left behind a war-torn continent and a career producing black-and-white images. For Haas, the new medium of colour photography was the only way to capture a city pulsing with energy and humanity. These images demonstrate Haas’s tremendous virtuosity and confidence with Kodachrome film and the technical challenges of colour printing. Unparalleled in their depth and richness of colour, brimming with lyricism and dramatic tension, these images reveal a photographer at the height of his career.

ABSTRACT AND MOTION
AN OVERVIEW – IMPORTANT IMAGES

Haas production was groundbreaking in his approach to Abstraction and to Motion. He famously researched extensively the effects of reflections, peeling varnish, torn posters and oil marks finding in their details a new and beautiful dimension. The search to convey dynamic motion through photography and the attempt to capture the fourth dimension of time into his images accompanied him throughout his life, resulting in iconic works where “color fades in motion and becomes transparent”.

ICONIC LANDSCAPES
AMERICA, EUROPE & CREATION

Haas pioneering use of narrow depth of field, blurred motion and selective focus, as well as slow shutter speeds, were transformative also when applied to the landscape. His ‘Route 66’ has become an era-defining image that inspired many artistic productions, and yet there are so many more truly inspiring and surprising images that we wish to share with you.
