'A good introduction to his work'
About the Author
Ernst Haas was born in Vienna in 1921, and took up photography after the war. His early Austrian work on returning prisoners of war brought him to the attention of Life Magazine, but he courageously declined a job as staff photographer in order to keep his independence. At the invitation of Robert Capa, Haas joined Magnum in 1949, developing close associations with Capa, Bishof and Cartier-Bresson. He began experimenting with colour, and went on to become the premier colour photographer of the 1950s. In 1962 New York's Museum of Modern Art mounted its first solo exhibition of his colour photography. Haas's books were legion, and one The Creation (1971) sold 350.000 copies. Ernst Haas received the Hasselblad award in 1986, the year of his death.
Virginie Chardin is the author of several photography volumes.

Photofile seems to make their books with attention to what matters to a photographer: Reproduction quality is good.
Interesting intro/bio by Virginie Chardin.
All in all, a good value with just a single annoyance: the book contains pictures that span two pages and the alignment is off on some of these.
