At the end of the 1920s, a generation of photographers after the Bauhaus discovered the photographic medium and embarks on a great enterprise of experimental. They question the perspective, the framing and even the subject. Three photographers Pierre Boucher, Jean Moral, and Andrew Steiner (pictured) embody this debate.
In their compositions, the bodies are erected to the rank of geometric shapes in the same way that the industrial landscapes and the fruits of the technological developments of their time (the automobile, electricity…) transformed into decorative motifs. They capture the materials and shapes all in black and white, and flirting sometimes with the studies of their contemporaries, the surrealists in paris.
