Tobias wrote a guest post in Paula’s blog on ‘Perspective and Anti-Perspective’ and in the post he briefly mentioned Avant-Garde, which made me remember an article that I read about Avant-Garde photography in the Soviet Union.
Instead of creating a perspective/anti-perspective post, I ended up on this weird, geeky, nerdy trail that led me to the Soviet Union’s Avant-Garde photographers. (note to self: this is probably a sign that I need some good head before this is getting out of control).
«Runner in the City» is a photo inspired by the Soviet Union era Russian avant-garde photographer El Lissitzky.
Here’s a copy of El Lissitzky’s photo:
