The celebrated photographer Ernst Haas (Austrian-American, 1921– 1986) is one of the most influential photojournalists of the 20th century. Born in Vienna, Haas took up photography after WWII, gaining acclaim for his images of returning prisoners of war. He joined Magnum in 1949 and moved to the U.S. in 1951. In the early 1950s he started working with color film, becoming the leading color photographer of the era. Traveling extensively throughout his career, Haas shot groundbreaking photo essays for magazines like LIFE, Vogue, and Look. In 1962, a retrospective of his work was the first color photo exhibition held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. He published four books and won the Hasselblad award in 1986.
