Amano blog post: Amano photographic studies

Amano writing a summary of the exhibition Bauhaus and Photography (Feb 19th 2019) states Moholy-Nagy at the Bauhaus was interested in a pioneering attitude and asked where photography might be heading.
He helped liberate “photography from its commitment to the pure reproduction of reality” and wrote “photography is the first means of giving tangible shape to light … in a … almost abstract form.” Moholy-Nagy questioned the effects of capitalism but was fascinated by technology in which he saw great potential.
