The show presents 130 images by Rodchenko, exceptional work of art, covering subjects ranging from the city of Moscow to portraits of artists and intellectuals. The photos reflect the brightness of Rodchenko’s creation in an era of enormous changes in the Russian society, following the Revolution and an increasingly dangerous political environment under Josef Stalin. Millions were persecuted and expressions not endorsed by the authority could lead to personal danger for the artist, his/her friends and family. The threats never deterred Rodchenko and his desire to create.
