Ernst Haas Biography Ernst Haas (March 2, 1921 – September 12, 1986) was a photojournalist and a pioneering color photographer . During his 40-year career, the Austrian-born artist bridged the gap between photojournalism and the use of photography as a medium for expression and creativity. In addition to his prolific coverage of events around the globe after World War II , Haas was an early innovator in color photography. His images were widely disseminated by magazines like Life and Vogue and, in 1962, were the subject of the first single-artist exhibition of color photography at New York’s Museum of Modern Art . He served as president of the cooperative Magnum Photos , and his book The Creation (1971) was one of the most successful photography books ever, selling 350,000 copies.
