Alexander Rodchenko. From the collection of Still Art Foundation

The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography presents an exhibition of works by an outstanding Russian avant-garde artistAlexandra Rodchenko from the collection of Still Art Foundation.

The exhibition will feature famous portraits of Rodchenko’s friends - artists, architects, poets, writers, filmmakers, and LEF and New LEF magazines, including the recognizable portrait of Lily Brik, which became the basis for the poster by Lengiz, several photographs of Vladimir Mayakovsky from the first photo shoots in Rodchenko’s workshop on Myasnitskaya (1924) and the famous photograph of Osip Brik, where instead of one of the lenses of glasses, the name of the magazine “LEF” is mounted.

Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891–1956), one of the leaders of the Russian avant-garde, an innovator in the field of painting, sculpture, book, poster, film and theater design, began photographing in 1924. His experimental approach to photography forever changed the history of this art form and influenced not only contemporaries, but also determined the development of photography for decades to come.
