These five hundred photographs are a unique and exuberant record of Bauhaus activities and experiments during the 1920s and early 1930s. Significantly, most of the photographs were taken by artists - painters such as Fritz Kuhr and Werner Siedhoff, designers Heinz Loew and Herbert Bayer, Bauhaus masters Hannes Meyer and Joosst Schmidt - who were not selfconscious photographers but who wanted to work with a new technological product.
Egidio Marzona has assembled the world's foremost collection of works on paper documenting the revolutionary efforts of the Bauhaus. Marzona is also a well-known publisher of books on Russian Constructivism, Futurism, De Stijl, Dadaism, and a host of other movements and figures of the 20th-century avant-garde.

Text: English, German (translation)Review:
"The pictures collected in Bauhaus Photography represent as dramatic a development in their field as Kandinsky's painting and Gropius's architecture did in theirs. Previous studies have concentrated on a few aspects of photography at the Bauhaus ... but this book is far more comprehensive. The happy result is that we can see similarities of approach in architectural and advertising photography, artistic work and even snapshots. The brief essays by Bauhaus members suggest the fierce debate about the qualities and significance of photography. And there are glimpses of the masters at rest or in their studios and views of the students at dances an theatrical performances. Few books evoke the life and creative essence of a school as vividly as Bauhaus Photography."
