'Moholy-Nagy's efforts to recognize photography and film as artistic means of creation on a par with painting are explained and justified in detail in this volume of the Bauhaus books. The use of artistic instruments is thus radically reformed. The Hungarian artist advocates a change in function within the visual arts and a further development of photographic design possibilities. In addition to theoretical-technical approaches and detailed excursions into the broad field of photography as a medium, Moholy-Nagy uses an extensive appendix of illustrations to provide a detailed overview of the numerous possibilities that photographic and film work already had in 1925.'
