Alexander Rodchenko was a Russian and Soviet artist, photographer, and graphic designer. He was one of the founders of constructivism and Russian design. He rejected the established artistic conventions of self-expression and aesthetics, dedicating himself with revolutionary fervour to bringing art to the masses. 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 down below—to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition. Radio Listener is one of Rodchenko’s most emblematic photographs. It is beautifully mounted and framed in a black wood frame. Outside frame dimensions are 34 x 44 x 3.5 cm. Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping.
