Gorgeous, Rich in Color Photographic Compositions of New York City in the 1960s by Ernst Haas

Home / Looking Back / Gorgeous, Rich in Color Photographic Compositions of New York City in the 1960s by Ernst Haas

Celebrated Austrian photography Ernst Haas, known for his innovations with light and color in his photography, took this series of photos while in New York in the 1960s. The 1960s was the decade of great change in America. At the heart of the turmoil that was the 1960s was New York City. Haas captured the city right before turmoil became visibly evident within New York’s confines, and he did so in a way that encapsulated the teeming emotion that we as New Yorkers feel. New York is 164.1 square miles crammed with life, love, hope, despair, romance, desire. New Yorkers have so much unbridled emotion for this city that its, at times, difficult to express in words. We have to run, scream, paint, climb, shoot.
