This volume highlights the film-stills of Ernst Haas, one of the most accomplished photographers of the twentieth century.

So great was his mastery of color, light, and motion that Haas was frequently called upon to photograph large group actions - from the battle scenes of Charge of the Light Brigade and the dances of West Side Story to the ski-slopes of Downhill Racer. 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.

While Ernst Haas's name has been synonymous with color photography, the images in this book illustrate Haas's mastery of the black-and-white medium. The sheer scope and quality of this work is a revelation. Images were drawn from some 100,000 negatives created from 1945 into the 1960s. The images take us from Haas's roots in war-torn Vienna through his Magnum years and many travels. In the introduction, Jim Hughes, renowned writer and photo critic, writes about Haas and his remarkable career.

This book is the first full-scale retrospective of Haas's color work, including many images that have never before been published in book form. Based on Haas's extensive notes and color work dating from the early 1950s up to his death in 1986, the book confirms that Haas's inspiring and innovative color photographs are landmarks of the form. In her introduction, Inge Bondi—longtime Magnum Photos member and friend—reveals much of the character and sensitivity that punctuated Haas's long and successful career as a photographer.

The images in this book were taken over a nine-year period in Tibet, long before the country was open to foreigners. Together with a written account of the experiences and impressions during the journey, the images convey the reference and brilliance that underlined the Buddist rituals, the glorious landscapes, and the quiet beauty of the Tibetian people and their way of life. Haas photographed in brilliant color many events that few outsiders were allowed to witness. Gisela Minke's thoughtful text is a perfect counterpart to the powerful images.

Ernst Haas believed that no other medium was better suited to interpret the story of the Creation than photography. The point is well proved by the incredible series of color photographs presented in this book. Haas ingeniously arranged his images in flowing sequences that represent the dawn of the world as described in the Book of Genesis: the elements, the seasons, and the creatures. The book was an outstanding success; it was printed in numerous languages, went through multiple printings, and has been hailed internationally as a milestone in the world of photography. The oblong format of the book (9-1/4 x 13-5/8 inches) was groundbreaking at the time of publication and was used again in his following three publications.
