Dirk Haas – Polaroids

Dirk Haas is a German photographer born in 1974 in Münster and now living near Cologne

With Polaroids, each picture becomes unique. It is a slow process: put the camera on a tripod, check focus, measure exposure, check your settings again and then click. 

It’s feels great to peel the positive apart from the negative: what is on your mind is one thing, but the result … you never know.

To me, creating a great portrait is always a challenge. The photo is supposed to convey emotions, reflect the model’s relationship with the photographer and also tell us a short story. I hope you will see that in my images.


    My name is Dirk Haas. I was born in 1974 in Münster, Germany, and now I’m living near Cologne.

    I bought my first digital camera for the birth of my son in 2005. My passion was landscape photography and also wedding photography for the first few years.

    In 2016 I wanted to explore the analog world and understand photography from beginning to end.
