FEININGER DIES AT 92

Bauhaus veteran Andreas Feininger has died aged 92. He joined the school in 1922, and qualified as an architect in the late 1920s. He worked with Le Corbusier in 1932, a year before fleeing the Nazis. After a spell in Sweden he moved to the us and by 1941 was a photo-journalist for Life magazine. Much of his later years were spent writing. His 1939 book New Paths in Photography is still seen as a classic Modernist tract on photo- techniques.
