Lucia Moholy, born Lucia Schulz, (18 January 1894, in Prague, Austria-Hungary — 17 May 1989, in Zürich, Switzerland) was a photographer and publications editor. Her photos documented the architecture and products of the Bauhaus, and introduced their ideas to a post-World War II audience. However Moholy was seldom credited for her work, which was often attributed to her husband László Moholy-Nagy or to Walter Gropius.

Lucia moved to Berlin in 1920 where she met László Moholy-Nagy whom she married in 1921. In 1922 to 1923 Moholy experimented with photograms with her husband as well as photographing the works of the Bauhaus. From 1924 to 1925 Moholy studied architectural photography and design at the Bauhaus, Weimar, Germany and also at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany from 1926 to 1928. In 1925-1926 Moholy was commissioned by Walter Gropius to photograph the new Bauhaus buildings at the Dessau, Germany campus. Moholy established a private studio for art photography in Dessau, Germany from 1925 to 1928. In 1928 Moholy settled in Berlin, Germany and began to concentrate on theatre photography. In 1933 Moholy moved to Paris, France, and in 1934 she moved to London, England, United Kingdom, and opened a portrait studio. Moholy became a naturalized British citizen in 1947. From 1952 to 1953 and from 1956 to 1957 Moholy served as an expert for scientific documentation in the Middle East for UNESCO. She was sent to photograph Ankara and Istanbul, Turkey.
