7 A.M. (New Year's Morning)

Photographer: László Moholy-Nagy
Photograph taken: 1930
Original medium: Gelatin silver print

Moholy-Nagy's interest in design and the abstract organisation of space within the frame are very evident in this photograph. There is little going on and yet those small events seen from high above, the delivery man, the couple (returning from New Year's Eve celebrations?), the woman walking, although unrelated in life, are all related in the empty space of the road framed by the lampposts.
