Ernst Haas (1921–1986) is an acclaimed photographer of the 20th century and considered one of the pioneers of color photography. Haas moved to the United States in 1951 and began experimenting with Kodachrome color film. He soon became the premier color photographer of the 1950s. 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. Haas was the author of four books: The Creation (1971), In America (1975), In Germany (1976), and Himalayan Pilgrimage (1978).

Ernst Haas received the Hasselblad award in 1986, the year of his death.
