Moscow: Iskusstvo, 1992. Sewn cl. When Rodchenko in the 1920s with his artist friends experimented with innovative ways of framing and composing a work, he was criticized for violating aesthetic norms. When he argued that principles of photography as an art emerged from the tumultuous attempts of photojournalists to capture a scene regardless of lighting and point of view, it was thought he was belittling the art. But his work itself was too forceful to disregard, influencing a generation and forming a school of Soviet photography. 220 p., 25 cm, approx. 100 b/w illus., Rus. Item #3726
