ernst haas (1921-1986)

"A picture can be an answer as well as a question but if you can't answer your question try to question your question. There are clever questions and stupid answers as well as stupid questions and clever answers. There can be questions without answers but no answers without questions. To be or not to be — that is the question. To see or not to see — that is an answer."

— Ernst Haas

In 1995, while traveling in Poland, with stops at Cracow and Auschwitz, I began working outside the photo-journalistic conventions of documentation. I started photographing abstract faces that I saw hiding in the shadows and light of different locations. From these 'ghost' pictures, these rereadings of found objects, came a set of thirty-six photos titled "The Thirty-Six Unknown," a reference to the idea in the Talmud, the oral tradition of Judaism, that the world requires a minimum of thirty six righteous individuals in order to exist. In later lore, the thirty-six hidden ones have the power to save the world. continue...


"Darkness into Light: Re-emergence of the Jewish Culture in Germany." The project not only helped me understand survivors' reasons for living, it also led me to examine my family and its religious history. I saw, and captured on film, the renaissance of Jewish culture in the vary land that was soaked in Jewish blood. My desire to understand why Jews were returning to live in a place ridden with painful memories and anti-Semitism deepened my search and my being. continue...


"Personal Journalism" is an on-going photographic project of personal work that focuses on people in contemporary environments throughout the world. I work without a plan, just reacting to the world around me. All photographs were taken with color negative high-speed film 400 ASA.


"At Sauer, we are not about building the best furniture. What we are about, as a collective of artisans, is process, tradition, and craftsmanship—all the while maintaining the finest artistic interpretation and the clearest understanding of our client's needs. We are stewards of generations-old techniques, methods, and skills, continually developing to serve the imaginations of architects and designers." — Anthony Morris, President

It was in this spirit that I photographed the spiritualism that surrounds the artisans. It was like entering a holy place where form and function become a reality.


"Young Analisa stands quietly in the late afternoon sun on the shore of Lake Michigan, preoccupied with the memory of an argument between her parents just shortly before their arrival to their vacation cottage." So begins Ron Teachworth's short story, "Two Stones." So distracted is Analisa that at first she fails to hear a voice, and when she does is startled to find that the voice is that of a stone: "Don't be afraid," the stone tells her. "I am here for you to find. I have been waiting a long time. Please don't be afraid." continue...


I was commissioned by Canon Camera USA to photograph a calendar with their new EOS auto focus cameras and lenses. I started to go for long walks thinking about the windows of New York as a motif. The more I looked, the more I started to realize that windows revealed the emotional qualities of the light of the city. Glass is magical. A solid transparent form in which images emerge and dissolve. Like the ground glass on a large format camera, the city's windows reflect the diverse lights and images of each season.


I have traveled the world photographing for clients, balancing art and commerce in all my assignment photography. continue...
