Alexander Rodchenko is a Russian artist who did photography starting in 1924. He loved to shoot his photos from angles not common which tended to be way above or below the subject. The photo “Stairs” was taken in the early thirties. It is an awesome picture since it is mainly very light or very dark there middle gray isn’t there.
Personally I like that he takes his photos from a different perspective. It creates the feeling that some items are smaller than others when realistically they aren’t. I also like that a lot of his photos have very dark areas and light areas, not much middle making everything look much focused.
