OstLicht Gallery, in collaboration with the Ernst Haas Estate, is offering a selection of photographs by the artist for a special Gallery price.
Ernst Haas is one of the most important proponents of photojournalism and, as a pioneer of colour photography, created unsurpassed works of art. His journalistic eye and unmistakable visual language have made his black-and-white photographs of life in the ruins of post-war Vienna unique documents of the times. His moving series on the first homecoming prisoners of war from Russia in particular is one of the key milestones of reportage photography to this day.
After emigrating to the USA, he was the first Austrian to become a member and later president of Magnum Photos agency. In the early 1950s, Haas discovered colour photography, which was still scorned at the time. His New York essay Images of a Magic City was to become the first major series of pictures ever printed in colour by Life.
