As in his 1928 bird’s-eye views from Berlin’s radio tower, Moholy-Nagy’s use of vantage point to redefine and abstract pictorial space is no less inventive from the ground, as in the present photograph. The social conditions of Marseille’s harbor were also of interest to Moholy-Nagy, and were the basis of his first short movie Impressionen vom alten Marseiller Hafen (Impressions of the Old Marseille Harbor).
