ERNST HAAS: ON SET. Ed. by John P. Jacob. Steidl Verlag, Gottingen, 2014. 288 pp. with 252 ills. (89 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783869305875 In English.
Publisher's description: This volume considers the film-stills of Ernst Haas, one of the most accomplished photographers of the twentieth century, transgressing the borders between static photography and the moving image. Haas worked with a variety of directors--from Vittorio de Sica to John Huston, Gene Kelly and Michael Cimino--covering movie genres from suspense (The Third Man; The Train) to the Western (The Oregon Trail; Little Big Man), and from comedy (Miracle in Milan; Love and Death) to musicals (West Side Story; Hello Dolly). 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... 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.
