1. László Moholy-Nagy: Photogram, about 1923

    "The organization of light and shadow effects produce [sic] a new enrichment of visions," wrote László Moholy-Nagy in a caption for this photogram. Eliminating shapes reminiscent of nature and seeking to explore the relationships of light, color, or tone and nonobjective form, Moholy-Nagy “painted” this picture with light using the cameraless photogram technique. He transformed unidentifiable objects into abstract representations of light and form. The softly blurred edges of oval, circle, and line reverberate with luminosity, while the small burst of light at the lower right streaks through the rich black tone like a miniscule comet.
