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. Convinced of the importance of poetry in photography, throughout his career Haas explored the possibilities of mixing colours by using slow shutter speeds, a style described by critics as “painting with the camera”. He frequently used other techniques such as narrow depth of field, selective focus and blurred motion. Haas was also a pioneer of the dye transfer printing process, which is now discontinued. This print is book-mounted and sits in a beautiful black-stained Ash frame. Total framed dimensions are 44 x 52 x 3.4 cm. Please allow 3-6 weeks for framing and shipping.
