Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's 60 Fotos sets forth the framework and ideas behind the 'New Vision' of modern photography from the legendary Bauhaus teacher and key figure in early experimental photographic practice. Published in 1930 as the first book in the planned Fototek series on 'New Photography,' 60 Fotos evoked a complex and multi-layered dialogue using some of Moholy-Nagy's finest examples of 'straight' photographs, negative prints, photograms, and photomontage. Books on Books #12 reproduces every page spread from this classic treatise on photography along with a contemporary essay from the noted photo-historian David Evans.
