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.
