Courtyard on Myasnicka-Street by Alexander Rodchenko (1928)

The photograph “Courtyard on Myasnicka-Street” was captured by artist Alexander Rodchenko in 1928. It is a black and white image that depicts a complex and angular view of a courtyard from an elevated perspective. There’s a play of light and shadows, with a sharp strip of light cutting across the darkened ground. The composition is dynamic, with the lines of the buildings and rooftops converging and diverging, creating a sense of depth and geometric interest. The buildings are tightly packed together, and the view includes details like windows, roof tiles, and architectural decorations, which add to the textural contrast of the image.
