Untitled (Bauhaus Dessau)
Vintage gelatin silver print. 23.7 x 17.7 cm. - Slight traces of usage. Matted.
Not unlike Umbo's famous shot "Unheimliche Straße [Uncanny street]" from 1928, the persons captured from a bird's eye view cast long shadows on the paved area in front of the Bauhaus building in Dessau, giving the scene a surreal character.
Estate of Xanti Schawinsky; private collection, Switzerland
