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. 
 A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it? 
 The best zoom lens is your legs. 
 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. 
 Photography is a bridge between science and art. It brings to science what it needs most, the artistic sense, and to art the proof that nothing can be imagined which cannot be matched in the counterpoints of nature. 
 I prefer to be noticed some day, first for my ideas and second for my good eye.
