Car from The Back, Utah, USA, 1952 by Ernst Haas is an 11” x 14” gelatin silver print with the photographer's copyright stamp on verso (photo back). The photograph is authenticated by the estate with a stamp verso (back) and signed by the photographer’s son. Printed by Sid Kaplan in 1992.

Ernst Haas moved from Vienna to New York City in 1951, leaving behind a war-torn Europe. In the US the photographer discovered the power of color photography while continuing to make his signature black-and-white images.

The artist travelled extensively, hitchhiked throughout New Mexico, and was often on the road. “Car From The Back” is a kind of greeting to the passengers driving in the car in front of Haas. With few on the open road drivers share the highway and vast expanses, making long-distance travel seem a lot less lonely.

In 1953 LIFE magazine published his groundbreaking 24-page color photo essay on New York City. In 1962 a retrospective of his work was the first color photography exhibition held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
