One and One Is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers

“I suppose some of you have seen the advertisement of commercial photo dealers saying, ‘You push the button, and we do the rest,’” Josef Albers said during a lecture at Black Mountain College in 1943. “This promotes a taking of pictures with the least care possible. Such a way of looking at photography, I believe, is of the lowest level possible and should not be our way of approaching and understanding photography. Photography is first a handicraft. It can also be art. It can produce works of art as any handicraft does, if the product represents a significant expression of the mentality of a period or an individual.” In honor of Memorial Day beachgoers everywhere, featured image is reproduced from staff favorite, One and One Is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers. The photographs are captioned “Biarritz, August 1929” and “Ascona, August 1930.”
