Route 66, Albuquerque, NM, 1969
Print size: 11 x 14 inches (28 x 35.5 cm)
Ernst 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 colour photography. His colour-drenched ‘Route 66’ draws the eye into jagged puddles of colour, reflections of billboards and neon. The water oozes into all of the bumps and imperfections in the asphalt and reflects back the glowing neon lights of the city. Route 66, Albuquerque, takes this desert town swollen with gas stations and motels and gives it a newfound, rain-washed brilliance which made it Ernst Haas’ most iconic work. With its speeding cars and myriad of drive-through restaurants signs the image has become a symbol of the automobile culture and of America’s golden years.
