Quote of the Week by Ernst Haas


“There are almost too many possibilities. Photography is in direct proportion with our time: multiple, faster, instant. Because it is so easy, it will be more difficult.” —Ernst Haas (1921–1986)

A photojournalist and a pioneering colour photographer, Ernst Haas bridged the gap between photojournalism and the use of photography as a medium for expression and creativity. In his 40-year career, he photographed widely for LIFE and Vogue magazine. Haas also served as president of Magnum Photos. His book The Creation, which was published in 1971, was one of the most successful photography books.
