From Vienna to New York: the life's work of a great Austrian-American photographer of the 20th century. Robert HAAS, one of the great Austrian-American photographers of the 20th century, began his artistic career in the circle of Viennese Modernism in the 1920s. In the 1930s he established himself as an internationally successful photojournalist. After fleeing from the National Socialists in 1938, he found a new home in the USA.
Accompanying a major exhibition in Vienna, this monograph, 'The View of Two Worlds,' includes touching everyday and social studies of interwar Vienna, as well as fascinating photographs of the American way of life, with sensitive portraits of great personalities - from Albert Einstein to Arturo Toscanini - and 'street photography' of New York. The work of Austrian photographer Robert HAAS covers many subjects and combines the view of two continents.
