« Among the subjects that he has photographed, there is one that is very dear to Ernst Haas, New York City. For nearly 40 years, he has taken pictures of a city that as a child in Austria he could only dream about. With the help of his friends at Magnum, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, he definitively relocated to New York in 1951.
For his first black and white photographic series, he focused on the complex architecture and abstract lines of the city landscape. However it was the city’s incessant movement and lively colors that inspired his next color series on Kodachrome film.
His first color works were so overwhelming and revolutionary for the time period that in 1953 Life Magazine ran a 24 page spread in two consecutive issues. The original title was “Pictures of a Magic City”.

…her pictures of women, with their pallid complexions and statuesque poses, often suggest death. ‘Yes. I didn’t set out to do this — it happened. It is more than death, it is mainly the waiting. It is an image of loneliness. Loneliness and death are almost the same thing.

Not really a rollage but it reminded me of one….
Blumenfeld used a plaster reproduction of Houdon’s “Diana” and lighted it with two Keg spots, one equipped with a yellow glass filter, the other with blue. “Two separate exposures were made on the one Kodachrome sheet, each exposure determined by Weston meter reading. With the lens stopped down to f 45 the blue exposure was one minute and the yellow ten seconds.
