Ernst Haas…

Det är otroligt vad man ibland kan hitta på Youtube… Hittade dessa två kortare filmer med en av mina absoluta favoritfotografer Ernst Haas.

Bjuder också på några klassiska citat från Ernst Haas:

“A few words about the question of whether photography is art or not: I never understood the question.”

“The most important lens you have is your legs.”

“I am not interested in shooting new things – I am interested to see things new.”

”Decide for yourself what kind of works you want to create… facts, essays, poems – do you want to speak or to sing?”

”Every work of art has its necessity; find out your very own. Ask yourself if you would do it if nobody would ever see it, if you would never be compensated for it, if nobody ever wanted it. If you come to a clear ‘yes’ in spite of it, then go ahead and don’t doubt it anymore.”

”Photography is a bridge between science and art. It brings to science what it needs most, the artistic sense, and to art the proof that nothing can be imagined which cannot be matched in the counterpoints of nature.”

”Bored with obvious reality, I find my fascination in transforming it into a subjective point of view. Without touching my subject I want to come to the moment when, through pure concentration of seeing, the composed picture becomes more made than taken.”

”Refine your senses through the great masters of music, painting, and poetry.”

  1. Tyvärr fungerar inte videoklippen längre, men jag njuter av citaten. Det lite längre, som börjar med ”Every work of art has its necessity” föll mig verkligen i smaken. Det lånar jag till min egen blogg och dess ”Om bloggen”-sida. Tack Ernst och Terje! 🙂

    • Vad synd att videpklippen inte fungerar längre, ska försöka hitta fram de på annat håll.

      Ernst Haas var ett bibliotek av spännande och kloka citat som jag ofta använt genom åren. Dessutom en av mina fotografiska förebilder.:)
