Ernst Haas is considered one of the pioneers of color photography in the 20th century. Indeed 14 years before William Eggleston he was the first color photographer to be shown at MoMA.
His Kodachrome images often use color to create rather abstract structures more akin to a modern artist than a photographer.
This combined with his experimentation with motion blur allow him to take the apparently ordinary and remake it as something other worldly.
Haas himself talked about photography as ‘the bridge between art and science’ that would allow us to ‘write the new chapters in visual language’ and looking at his work you very much aware of someone trying to push the boundaries of what constituted a ‘good’ image.
