Alexander Rodchenko

1891 - 1956

Born in St-Petersburg (Russian Federation), died in Moscow (Russian Federation).

A prominent representative of the Russian Constructivist avant-garde, Alexander Rodchenko was an influential artist in many fields: painting, sculpture, photography and graphic design. After abandoning painting for ideological reasons he became a pioneer of early photographic experimentation in the Soviet Union. He often shot from unusual angles and with a distinctive eye for framing, which made his work formally innovative and visually energetic.
