Abstrakt is a collection of photographs selected by Ernst Haas for atwo-projector 25-minute film he worked on until his death in 1986. The photographs span his entire career in color from 1952 to 1984. Many of the photographs were shown in Life magazine’s fist color issue devoted to Haas’ 1953 story on New York “Images of a Magic City,” and in his 1962 solo exhibition “Ernst Haas: Color Photography” at the Museum of Modern Art, the first color retrospective at that institution.The photographs in this book show various abstractions—from street detritus, to torn posters and other found objects. Haas considered this project to be the culmination of his work in photography.
