Maurice Haas’s pictures throw up questions. They are brief, quiet moments of trust, and they speak the language of emotion. They are drawings with light, and they simply are.
Maurice has a great gift for portraying people and capturing each person’s character in its uniqueness. Because of this gift Maurice is very much in demand as a photographer of celebrities like Tilda Swinton, Morgan Freeman, Sean Penn and many others.
Another forte of Maurice is his eye for reportage and details. And his pictures – whether portraits or reportage – are beautiful, harmonious, poetic and sometimes daring – because they seem to move against the current of modernity.
