Wesen und Wert der Fotographie").

"Two books were published to accompany the 1929 "Film und Foto" exhibition in Stuttgart organized by the Deutscher Werkbund -- Foto-Auge, edited by Franz Roh and Jan Tschichold, and "Es kommt der neue Fotograf!", edited by Werner Gräff. With its cover of El Lissitzky's now famous "Self Portrait" of the artist as a hand in service to the eye celebrating the monocular medium (photography), Foto-Auge served both as an catalog of the work exhibited as well as a visual polemic detailing Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's New Vision. Featuring work from the world's leading modernist photographers, as well as anonymous news and bureau photos, Roh's and Tschichold's editing and sequencing energetically riff on the Bauhausian notion of enlightened objectivity"
