another photographer from my class, Art Movements through Photography - one of the greats, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. this week we talked about him in the context of Abstract photography - not a movement per se, but an influential visual style. he was a highly prolific and versatile artist, working with photography, sculpture, drawing, painting and kinetic and light art. he heavily influenced many movements and rarely adhered to just one set of ideals, but he was a devoted advocate and visionary for the young medium of photography and its importance in our new visual communication and culture. he was also an innovator in photography education and was faculty at the Bauhaus. 

'The enemy of photography is the convention, the fixed rules of 'how to do'. The salvation of photography comes from the experiment."    - Laszlo Moholy-Nagy
