Ernst Haas
[Photographer, b. 1921, Vienna, Austria, d. 1986, New York City.]

 All I wanted was to connect my moods with those of Paris. Beauty pains and when it pained most, I shot. 
 Don’t take pictures. Be taken by your pictures. 
 There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are. 
 I am not interested in shooting new things. I am interested to see things new. In this way I am a photographer with the problems of a painter, the desire is to find the limitations of a camera so I can overcome them. 
 Leica, schmeica. The camera doesn’t make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But you have to see. 
 The final stage of photography is transforming an object from what it is into what you want it to be. 
 I prefer to be noticed some day, first for my ideas and second for my good eye. 
 The best zoom lens is your legs.
