7 A.M. (New Year’s Morning) by László Moholy-Nagy.

“Moholy-Nagy was a painter before he became the major proselytiser of the new vision at the Bauhaus, and he was both of these before he was an active photographer. His experience with the abstract organization of pictorial space and with the school’s design curriculum clearly inform this photograph. A less sophisticated artist would not have seen that a picture could be hung on such a minimal scaffold of small incidents, traces, and shadows, precisely related.”
