Balconies by Alexander Rodchenko (1925)

The photograph titled “Balconies” by the artist Alexander Rodchenko was taken in the year 1925. The image presents a series of balconies extending from the side of a building. The perspective is from below, looking up at the structure which provides a dramatic sense of depth and linearity. The geometry of the balconies is highlighted by the contrast against the sky, creating a pattern that is both architectural and abstract.

The upward angle conveys a sense of scale and can invoke feelings of vertigo or awe at the repeating patterns and bold construction.
