Photo of the Week: László Moholy-Nagy

Photo of the Week - 30.01.15

 

Some of the earliest photographic works ever made are photograms, where an image is made by placing objects on light-sensitive material and then exposed to light. Many artists have experimented with this process including László Moholy-Nagy, a Hungerian-born painter, sculptor and professor in the Bauhaus School. He quickly understood the rich possibilities of the photogram, making them from 1922 until his death in 1946.
