Aleksander Mikhailovich Rodchenko Russian: , 5 December O. 23 November 1891 December 3, 1956 was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. He was one of the founders of constructivism and Russian design; he was married to 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 anglesusually high above or belowto 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. 2009 “Rodchenko & Popova: Defining Constructivism”, Tate Modern. 2008 February 7 – April 27, “Alexander Rodchenko: Revolution in Photography”, Southbank Centre, England. 2003 October 17 – January 11, “Flirting with Rodchenko”, Henry Art Gallery, North Galleries. 1975 “Kertesz, Rodchenko, and Moholy-Nagy Exhibition”, Henry Art Gallery, North Galleries.
