Book Description
The camera is superior to the eye, and the photograph can, and ideally should, portray the world more graphic than reality itself.--Andreas Feininger The basic principles underlying the photographic art of Andreas Feininger are clarity, simplicity, and organization. The eldest son of painter Lyonel Feininger, he was born in Paris in 1906. Upon completion of training as a cabinet-maker at the Bauhaus in Weimar in the early 20s, he went on to study architecture in the state schools of Weimar and Zerbst. It was while working as an architectural photographer in Stockholm that he developed the sweeping vistas and fine balance for which his pictures were famous.

Book Description
Born in Paris and raised in Germany, Andreas Feininger (1906-1999) was the son of American artist and Bauhaus teacher Lyonel Feininger. By the 1920s, the younger Feininger had already established several stylistic traits in his photographic work, such as monumentalized subject matter and emphasis on texture and line. His nature photographs tend to reveal patterns in animal and plant forms as found in the backbones of a snake or veins in a leaf. After immigrating to America in 1939, Feininger completed almost 350 photographic essays for Life magazine between 1943 and 1962. In addition he published numerous books on photographic theory and technique and his photographs were included in the Museum of Modern Art exhibition "The Family of Man." Structures of Nature presents a selection of Feininger's stunning nature...
