After Rodchenko









The Hayward have put up a Flickr group and invited visitors to the Rodchenko exhibition to post their own photos inspired by his. So I thought, well, I could maybe post some of mine. This is interesting only because I wouldn't have to go out and take them - I've been all along taking photos unconsciously, naturally, obviously inspired by Rodchenko. Here are a few.


PS Buried in the annoying exhibition website is a nice video (warning: the opening shots are not a comment on the Russian revolution, but an advert for insurance - bear with them!)

top right and bottom right are my favorites. But these are all wonderful.

I like yours.

These are wonderful.. when will you believe us? And your eye for collage adds another dimension.

I like them all but the one that haunts me is the two silhouetted figures.

hello jean. Sorry, but I didn't want to turn into a pumpkin or get bad karma and because I like you I've tagged you...

Top left looks like Bush House. (Yes, this is a commenting jag.) Must go and see this exhibition. It's wonderful how you bring out the unknown (to me) effect of one person's revolutionary visual aesthetic.
