About the Author

Ernst Haas was born in Vienna in 1921, and took up photography after the war. His early Austrian work on returning prisoners of war brought him to the attention of Life Magazine, but he courageously declined a job as staff photographer in order to keep his independence. At the invitation of Robert Capa, Haas joined Magnum in 1949, developing close associations with Capa, Bishof and Cartier-Bresson. He began experimenting with colour, and went on to become the premier colour photographer of the 1950s. In 1962 New York's Museum of Modern Art mounted its first solo exhibition of his colour photography. Haas's books were legion, and one The Creation (1971) sold 350.000 copies. Ernst Haas received the Hasselblad award in 1986, the year of his death.

Firstly, allow me to say that amazon doesn't have enough stars to account for my real feelings about this book.

When I opened "The Creation" the first time, it was to photos 22/23 at a small book store in Cherry Valley, NY in June, 1972. And my jaw dropped involuntarily. I couldn't believe that image 23 could have been made with a camera. To the beginning, the opening image across both pages, of the universe in an abalone shell - one of the iconic images of color 35mm photography - unworldly. My jaw stayed distended as I continued to leaf through the book, followed, of course, by my purchase.

Ernst Haas is my Number One photographic personal hero, and has been for nearly 40 years. No one's images are so satisfying to me on so many levels as Haas's. His photography is to me as Beethoven's music. It resonates in my visual processing system at a level close to primeval. It is satisfying at an intellectual level, visual architecture level, spiritual level, and something, somewhere more visceral. I never get tired of his images.

So, it is almost an emotional experience to receive finally this magnificent, long overdue book, and to experience, once again with many new images, some of what I felt with that first leafing through of "The Creation." For those of us in the Post War Baby Boom Generation (PWBBG) who became photographers as professionals or amateurs, I would guess that almost every one of us who chose color was inspired by EH, if not to take up photography in the first place, then it was his work that lit the real fire in our bellies.

The great majority of the images in this book have not been published before.

Thanks to certain photograph(s) in this book having been previously reproduced in Haas' earlier books-at least one in "The Creation", that I can tell- I can report that the color reproduction quality of "Ernst Haas: Color Correction" is poor.
Even shots that I am fairly sure were made on the relatively fade-free Kodachrome are reproduced here with a faded, sapped-out color that degrades the experience of viewing, especially for those newly exposed to Haas' work. I can't say 'Don't buy it', but try to see earlier copies of "The Creation" or "In America" in order to see what the color really looked like. Is it possible that "Color Correction" contains the best possible modern, circa 2010 color reproductions of Haas' work? Yes, but I doubt it.

This is a wonderful book. Beautifully made and printed as befits the photographs. Hass was there first and it is about time he was recognized fully. This book is a start.

Ernst Haas: Color Correction Ernst Haas: Color Correctionwas published in 2011 and quickly sold out. It is a beautiful book; I have contacted Steidl, the publisher, to inquire if they planned to print another edition. They said they will print a second edition in Fall 2012.
