Overview

László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) was among modernist photography's most vocal theorists and ideologues, and a tireless explorer of its outer limits. In 1930, he published 60 Fotos, an almost pedagogic visual treatise in which he performed virtuoso turns on all kinds of photographic possibilities, from camara-less pictures and photograms--for which he squirted oil into developer and squeezed oil between sheets of glass during exposure (among other techniques)--to photomontage, as well as more conventional photographs. 60 Fotos proposed photography as both a medium with intrinsic material properties to explore and as an instrument capable of surpassing the human eye in its recording of the world. This classic treatise features some of the Bauhaus teacher's finest examples of photograms, negative prints and photomontage; Errata's spread-by-spread reproduction of the volume also includes a contemporary essay by noted photo-historian David Evans.
The Errata Editions' Books on Books series is an ongoing publishing project dedicated to making rare and out-of-print photography books accessible to students and photobook enthusiasts. These are not reprints or facsimiles but complete studies of the original books. Each volume in the series presents the entire content, page for page, of an original master bookwork which, up until now, has been too rare or expensive for most to experience. Through a mix of classic and contemporary titles, this series spans the breadth of photographic practice as it has appeared on the printed page and allows further study of the creation and meanings of these great works of art. Each volume in the series contains illustrations of every page in the original photobook, a new essay by an established writer on photography, production notes about the creation of the original edition and biographical and bibliographical information about each artist.
