  • The Bauhaus (meaning “Architecture-House” in German), was a school of Modern Art established by architect Walter Gropius in 1919. It tried to address fundamental concerns about craftsmanship and mass production. The Bauhaus Gropius was interested in a school where the fine arts (painting, sculpture, etc.) was practiced side by side the applied arts (graphic design, product design, architecture, etc.). It attempted to challenge the snobbery of the art world. Photography, being a relatively new medium, was embraced by many established artists such as Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Man Ray . They starting experimenting with it as a new process. Walter Gropius
  • Laszlo Moholy-Nagy was a Hungarian painter and photographer as well as a professor in the Bauhaus school. He was highly influenced by constructivism . He was a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy Moholy-Nagy was interested in how he could use photography to explore the same elements within his paintings, choosing to produce abstract images focusing on space, movement, time and structure. He worked predominately by exposing object and images onto photographic paper, coining the phrase ‘photogram.’ "It is not the person ignorant of writing but the one ignorant of photography who will be the illiterate of the future."
