The Duncan Miller Gallery presents the first major Los Angeles showing of the works of Ernst Haas in “Classics,” a selection of his well-known prints along with more experimental color work he never exhibited.
Haas (1921-1986) was one of the 20th century’s most prolific and published photographers. Born in Vienna, Haas began as a painter before switching to photography. In 1953, he moved to New York and Life magazine published his 24-page color-photo essay on New York City. The Museum of Modern Art in New York gave Haas a one-man show in 1962; it was the museum’s first color-photography show, according to the Duncan Miller Gallery.
The opening reception is on Saturday, June 23, from 6-9 p.m. The show runs through Aug. 31.
The Duncan Miller Gallery is at 2525 Michigan Ave, Unit A7, Santa Monica, CA 90404, 310-453-1111. Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 11-6.
