Description

Does painting still have a raison d'etre in the face of such photographic achievements? --Oskar SchlemmerIt is largely thanks to the efforts of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy in the 1920s that photography became an integral part of modernism. His photograms are icons of the medium, and yet his full photographic oeuvre has never been comprehensively published. Now, for the first time, Moholy-Nagy's daughter Hattula has granted full access to her father's photographic archive.This album presents contact sheets that Moholy-Nagy made on the go between Amsterdam, London and Chicago. With more than 1,000 photographs and illustrations, the book provides a comprehensive overview of Moholy-Nagy's photographic prolificacy from its peak in the mid to late 1920s until the artist's immigration to the US in 1937. Based on recent archival findings, the book brings together diverse aspects of his work and is a thorough reassessment of Moholy-Nagy the photographer.
