As a photographer, Ernst Haas worked with a variety of directors - from Vittorio de Sica to John Huston, Gene Kelly and Michael Cimino - covering movie genres from suspense to the Western, and from comedy to musicals. While the photographic reference system known as the film-still has existed since the birth of cinema, inherent to the genre are precisely those parameters that are essential qualities of Haas' photography, and which interact in a striking manner with his images made independently of film. On the one hand, we find photographs documenting shoots and depictions of individual scenes. On the other hand, it is Haas' clear ambition to inscribe a temporal dimension into these images; to impose filmic principles into the stills which, viewed in a sequence, generate movement and narrative. While adding a fascinating new take on the sets and the stars he photographed, Ernst Haas' "On Set" will also introduce readers to a little-known but crucial dimension in the work of this celebrated photographer.
