Inge Bondi combines her recollections with Ernst Haas' letters, poems, photos, to narrate Haas's 40 year photography career. The book is in itself a letter from Bondi to Haas. "[S]heds new light on the life of renowned Magnum photographer, Ernst Haas, while at the same time showcasing his art... It also tells the story of one of photography's great innovators, who always trod his own path." - Black+White Photography Writer Inge Bondi sheds fresh light on the life of her close friend and colleague, the Austrian American photographer Ernst Haas (1921-86), whom she first met in New York's Magnum offices in 1951. Bondi shares unique memories of this brilliant and very private man alongside reproductions of his letters, poems, photographs, and ephemera, revealing for the first time details of his harrowing war years and complex personal life. The book's 13 chapters cover Haas' Homecoming Prisoners of War (1947), which prompted Robert Capa to invite him to join Magnum Photos; pioneering color reportage for Life and Vogue , featuring his blurred portraits of bullfighting and saturated images of New York; and his work on film sets, including The Bible, which led to the publication of Haas' groundbreaking and acclaimed 1971 photobook The Creation.
