Route 66 is offered alongside an important group of other unique vintage works by Ernst Haas from the collection of the photographer's family. In addition the gallery is showing vintage prints by Irving Penn, Henri Cartier Bresson, Floris Neususs, and Richard Caldicott and large format editioned works by Jimmy Nelson.

Ernst Haas and Route 66
Ernst Haas loved Route 66, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1969, which he took while driving through Albuquerque with his girlfriend. There was a thunderstorm and stopping the car was dangerous, but Haas had to capture the sudden light and begged her to stop the car.
His colour-drenched Route 66 draws the eye into jagged puddles of colour, re ec ons of billboards and neon. The water oozes into all of the bumps and imperfec ons in the as- phalt and re ects back the glowing neon lights of the city. Route 66, Albuquerque, takes this desert town swollen with gas sta ons and motels and gives it a newfound, rain-washed brilliance which made it Ernst Haas’ most iconic work. With its speeding cars and myriad of drive-through restaurants signs the image has become a symbol of the automobile culture and of America’s golden years.

The print was made in the mid 70’s for an exhibi on in New York, and was then hung in the photographer’s living room for decades and passed down to his family. This is the only print of Route 66 produced in this size; we are delighted to be o ering such unique vintage and oversized dye-transfer print with excep onal provenance, which appears on the market for the rst me.

A pioneer of colour photography, Ernst Haas is celebrated as one of the most in uen al photographers of the 20th century. Born in Vienna in 1921, Haas began photographing re- turning prisoners of war. Haas was one of the rst recruits to Robert Capa’s Magnum agency and joined Magnum in 1949. He moved to the United States in 1951 and began experiment- ing with Kodachrome colour lm, becoming the premier colour photographer of the 1950s, introducing hues and tones never before seen in printed colour.

In 1962 a retrospec ve of his work was the rst colour photography exhibi on held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The exhibi on was exclusively comprised of dye-transfer prints – Haas’ prin ng process of choice, an extremely di cult and labour intensive process which translates the richness and depth of colour produced by Kodachrome lm and Leica cameras.

His images featuring symbols of American culture, both familiar and historic, promote a sense of enduring spirit. In his shots of American street scenes, in ci es from New York to Las Vegas, he captures the play of light on wet streets, glass shop fronts and tall, mirrored buildings to almost impressionis c e ect — as in the classic Route 66, which has become one of the most celebrated images in history and an inspira on for genera ons of photogra- phers and lm-makers to follow.

About dye-transfer
The dye-transfer process, popularized by the Kodak Company, begins by making three black and white nega ves using red, green, and blue lters. These are printed in the desired for- mat on matrices (molds supplied by the manufacturer) and processed in black and white developer containing a tanner to harden the exposed gela n.
They are then rinsed in warm water to eliminate certain parts of the gela n, producing three relief matrices that are then soaked respec vely in yellow, magenta and cyan dyes.
A er each gela n relief absorbs the dye in propor on to the thickness of the gela n, the three matrices are aligned on gela n-coated paper to which their color is transferred to pro- duce a full-color image. This process allows the ar st to adjust each color separately, allow- ing for complete control of the process. The result is an extremely stable image.
Dye-transfers were largely used to prepare adver sing billboards from the 40’s to the late 70’s due its versa lity. Haas photographed many adver sing campaigns (such as Marlboro) and worked with the premiere dye-transfer labs in New York City. He used these same labs to produce large format prints for exhibi ons of his personal work.
The C-Type and Cibachromes processes did not o er the same range of color and longevity Haas was looking for, and he printed almost exclusively dye trnsfer prints. Furthermore he only printed his very best photographs as the process is extremely expensive and me consuming.
