To the demonstration by Alexander Rodchenko (1928)

The photograph titled “To the demonstration” was captured by artist Alexander Rodchenko in the year 1928. It is a black and white image taken from an elevated perspective, looking down on a street scene.

The photo depicts a procession of what appears to be a group of demonstrators or marchers aligned in a column, suggesting a sense of order and structure. They are surrounded by shadows cast from nearby buildings and possibly by the demonstrators themselves, creating a contrast with the bright, sunlit portions of the street. There is a strong geometric quality to the composition, with the angles of the buildings, the shadows, and the formation of people creating a dynamic and engaging visual effect. The perspective is quite unusual and avant-garde for its time, reflecting Rodchenko’s innovative approach to photography and composition.
