Portrait of Ernst Mittag (sleeping)
Etel Fodor-Mittag followed in her photographic portraits she made starting in 1929 the extreme perspectives of the New Vision, which was at its height around this period.
Photographic study with toy pistol and sugar cubes
As early as 1928, a year before the photography course started, Fodor-Mittag was already taking her first semi-professional shots, including an ironic still life in which a toy pistol is firing three sugar cubes towards a glass of water.
Feather, Study from Peterhans' class at the Bauhaus in Berlin
A photo from Horacio Coppola’s Bauhaus period is a detailed shot of a feather placed on a kind of cotton material. The curving structure of the feather and the firm lighting and exposure of its downy texture create an association with perfect softness and safety.
Horacio Coppola's photographs are direct results of Walter Peterhans’s teaching: still lifes that analyse various textiles and textures, placing them in unexpected combinations, supplemented with ironical titles. In the photograph ‘Winter Help’, dating from 1932, Coppola brings together essential clothing items for the cold season creating a kind of portrait.
