Ernst Haas (Austrian/American 1921–1986) was a prolific commercial photographer, known for his vibrant color work. His personal work has been kept mostly private, though, and escaped posthumous appreciation. In an effort to restore his place in the photography canon, the Christophe Guye Galerie will soon exhibit a selection of little known large-format works and several rare dye- transfer prints. Some of the works were presented in Haas‘ solo exhibition at MoMA in 1962, the museum‘s very first exhibition of color photography. The exhibition ‘Color Correction’, and former Director of the Musée de l’Elysée, William Ewing’s corresponding book published by Steidl, uncovers the “other” side of Ernst Haas’ work. The exhibition runs from January 20, 2012 through February 25, 2012.
