The Lumiere Brothers Centre for Photography presents a showcase of works by Russian avant garde photographer Alexander Rodchenko. Open from January 24 to April 5, 2020.
Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891–1956) was among the leading protagonists of the Russian avant-garde. Having taken up photography in 1924, he went on to change the history of photography. His experimental approach profoundly influenced not only his contemporaries, but also later generations of photographers for decades to come.
The images showcased at the Lumiere Brothers Centre for Photography were taken from the collection of the Still Art Foundation (established by Elena and Mikhail Karisalov). Rodchenko’s grandson, Alexander Lavrentiev, curated the exhibition. The selection spans from Rodchenko’s first experiments from the 1920s to works created in the late 1930s, and includes portraits of artists in Rodchenko’s social circle as well as his iconographic street scenes.
