Focus was not always a necessary element in the work of Haas. Some of his most famous photographs were deliberately out of focus and blurred. Haas believed that this technique helped to create even stronger visual effects. Haas utilized elements of selective depth of field, overexposure and softness of focus to enhance his subjects. And these became hallmarks of his work. His work was so unique and vibrant due to his use of the dye transfer process which made his photos full of richly saturated colors.
Life published a groundbreaking 24-page color photo essay on New York City created by Haas. This was the first time such a large color photo spread was published by Life. It was met with such success that they asked Haas to produce two similar photo essays on Paris and Venice.
"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. In music one remembers never one tone, but a melody, a theme, a movement. In dance, never a moment, but again the beauty of a movement in time and space."
