Описание: Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891-1953) was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. One of the founders of constructivism and
Russian design, he was married to and collaborated with the artist Varvara Stepanova. Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after
the Russian Revolution.
He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. His photography was socially engaged, formally
innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic. Concerned with the need for analytical-documentary photo series, he often shot his subjects from odd angles usually high above or
below to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition.
He wrote: 'One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations,
as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again'. This concise, comprehensive and informative work focuses largely on Rodchenko's
graphic work in the form of book jackets, posters and advertising.
