Photography is the medium that, along with architecture and design, is still today most strongly associated with the Bauhaus. 100 years after the founding of the school in Weimar, it is evident how innovatively photography has developed after László Moholy-Nagy, Lucia Moholy, Hannes Meyer, T. Lux Feininger and Walter Peterhans. Volume 1 of the double-volume publication spans an arc from the origins of modern photography to the present day and combines works by famous Bauhaus photographers with photographs by outstanding contemporary artists such as Evelyn Richter and Maix Mayer.
