Notes

In the 1920s, Hans Richter produced a series of avant garde films. Abstract and non-linear, the films depended upon cinematic tools -- animation, crossfading, lens distortion -- for their effect. The photograph offered here is a still image from Filmstudie, Richter's last film of the decade.
