Quotes (2): Ernst Haas



I have been nominated by the friend Roy, a fine blogger and photographer, in a challenge to post my three favorite quotes, one each for three consecutive days. I’ve sportively accepted: I’ll post three of the most interesting quotes I remember. Thanks Roy for the nomination!

Ernst HaasToday, a quote about photography by Ernst Haas (1921–1986), acclaimed as one of the most celebrated and influential photographers of the 20th century and considered one of the pioneers of color photography.

He thought “the camera only facilitates the taking. The photographer must do the giving in order to transform and transcend ordinary reality”:

  1. Congratulations. Your photography and your blog is an inspiration for me always, and makes me excited about photography. Thank you for your nice nomination, it is always great honour for me. Usually I can’t join this kind of challenge, or awards, but maybe this time, especially because of the concept I would like to do something. But not promise. Because it depends on my time…Also Thank you so much for your nice words about my blog. It is always so nice to hear something nice, especially when you are running crazily in this amazing world. Blessing and Happiness, love, nia

  2. You don’t have to rub it in with all the gear. Leica is my fav. I appreciate the kinds words, it had to say I’m as photographer standing next to you I’ll take you on. My end of the street is award and challenged out, I’ll have to stretch far and wide. Being it’s 1:25AM, I’ll count starting on Thursday.
    So glad you invited me in.

      • You are dead on. If photography is in you’re heart you drive forward with passion. I look forward to getting out to explore the world around me. I didn’t get a chance to see my roses this year. Roses another passion. I took photos of a Ladybug breaking out of shell and turning to Nymph state. I’m hoping to have it out on Friday.
        I’m babling on….lack of sleep.
        Have a great day/eve


  3. love it.. for me not being a photographer.. I love the quote too if you switch the word camera/photography in ‘life’…
