Ernst HaasErnst Haas (1921-1986) is acclaimed as one of the most celebrated and influential photographers of the 20th Century, and considered one of the pioneers of color photography. In the 1950's he began experimenting with Kodachrome color film and went on to become one of the premier color photographers of the decade. In 1953, Life featured his groundbreaking 24-page color photo essay on New York City, the first time such a large color photo feature was published in the magazine. In 1962, a retrospective of his work was the first color photography exhibition held at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Throughout his career, Haas traveled extensively, photographing for LifeVogue and Look, to name a few of many influential publications. Haas has continued to be the subject of museum exhibitions and publications such as "Ernst Haas, Color Photography" (1989), "Ernst Haas in Black and White"(1992) and "Color Correction" (2011).
