When he first began experimenting with photography, the painter and graphic artist Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) was fifty-eight years old and had been a professor at the Bauhaus for almost a decade. Inspired by the works of his sons, Lux and Andreas, as well as the experimental photography of his Dessau neighbor László Moholy-Nagy, Feininger took up the camera in 1928 and began to explore a variety of avant-garde techniques. The painter of crystalline architecture and landscapes left behind a legacy of fascinating nighttime photographs, double exposures, negative prints, and unsettling images of shop-window mannequins and reflections. This volume, highlighting his most active period in photography, is the first publication devoted to this little-known body of work. In its examination of about seventy original prints, the book considers the significance of photography in relation to the rest of Feininger’s oeuvre. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2788-4)
