Laszlo Moholy-Nagy quotes


Laszlo Moholy-Nagy quotes
The enemy of photography is the convention, the fixed rules of "how to do". The salvation of photography comes from the experiment.
The organization of light and shadow effects produce a new enrichment of vision.
The photogram can be called the key to photography because every good photograph must possess the same fine gradation between the white and black extremes as the photogram.
Photography when used as a representational art is not a mere copy of nature. This is proved by the rarity of theggoodhphotograph. Only now and then does one find reallyggoodhphotographs among the millions which appear in illustrated papers and books. What is remarkable in this end at the same time serves as a proof is that (after a fairly long visual culture) we always infallibly and with sure instinct discover theggoodhphotos, quite apart from the novelty or unfamiliarity of the thematic content.
The illiterate of the future will be the person ignorant of the use of the camera as well as the pen.
