Moscow: Art-Volkhonka, 2013. Sewn cl. These photographs by Russian photographers and Western European photographers working in Russia, beautifully reproduced, many in full-page plates, demonstrate the dual nature of photography to create a visual record and, when the photographer’s creativity allows, a work of art. The majority of the works are from the late tsarist period and early Soviet years, when photography was coming into its own. Some works by major artists of the avant-garde period like El Lissitskii, Alexander Rodchenko, Aleksei Kruchenykh, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy are modernist masterpieces. Bibliography, biographical sketches of photographers, a timeline, and detailed catalogue entries ensure the scholarly value of the book. 342 p., approx. 300 b/w (some color) illus., Rus. and ENGLISH.
