He was highly influenced by constructivism and a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts. The New York Times called him "relentlessly experimental" and he fled Nazi Germany to the UK in 1935 when he took the photos for this book. Mary Benedetta in 1941 wrote the Script for the film "19 Metre Band"; in 1942 directed the film "Blitz Wash"; in 1946 wrote the Scenario for "General Election"; and in 1949 adapted the scenario for "Bait". .
