Ernst Haas Quotes

Ernst Haas Quotes: Bored with obvious reality, I find my fascination in transforming it into a subjective point of view.

Without a descriptive caption to justify its existence, it will speak for itself - less descriptive, more creative; less informative, more suggestive - less prose, more poetry.

Ernst Haas Quote: To express dynamic motion through a static moment became for me limited and unsatisfactory. The basic idea was to liberate myself from this old concept and arrive at an image in which the spectator could feel the beauty of a fourth dimension, which lies much more between moments than within a moment.
