For Moholy-Nagy, photography was of inestimable value in educating the eye in what he called "the new vision." The camera, by extending the eye's capability and through its manipulation of light could alter our traditional perceptual habits. From the Publisher of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy¹s "60 FOTOS, 60 PHOTOS, 60 PHOTOGRAPHIES," Berlin, Klinkhart & Biermann, 1930: "Moholy was one of the first to leave petrified traditions in photography and tread new paths by extending photographic possibilities both practically and theoretically. He arrived at lasting results in the photogram and in photo-montage at a time when these forms were almost unknown."
