Rodchenko

Girl With Leica
There was an article in the Wall Street Journal the other day about an exhibition of the works of Alexander Rodchenko at the National Museum in Krakow, Poland. I don't know too much about the man but I'd like to know more. His photographs are typically taken from different angles and/or viewpoints. I haven't seen much of his work but I've been impressed with every thing that I've seen. If I was filthy rich, I'd fly to Poland and check out the exhibition for a little bit o' inspiration.

I've been wanting to get out and shoot some pictures but it's just been too bloody hot. It's supposed to cool off for a couple of days, so maybe I can get the big camera out and shoot a couple of shots. If nothing else, run a roll through the twin lens or the 35mm. Instead of doing my "walkies" around the shack, I can take the show on the road.

It was a pretty good weekend. I got a nice bike ride in Sunday morning and finished up all the wiring in the new barn except for running the wire from the pole to the panel. I'll get a list of materials put together and get on that this week. It'll be nice to have that done.

Have a good week.

Always good to hear from Joe. Glad you found the fish tape. Depending on how I run the power to the barn, I might need to borrow it.

You might be interested in a DVD film which I produced and directed called Alexander Rodchenko and the Russian Avant-garde. The film is shot on location in Moscow with archive footage and an actor. See http://www.filmdiy.com/all-movies/filmdiy/documentaries/alexander-rodchenko-and-the-russian-avant-garde and http://www.copernicusfilms.com for more info

Thanks for the heads up on the film. I watched the trailer and it looks like just what I've been looking for. Lots of exciting things were going on in the world back then. I just need to decide if I'm going to buy the DVD or the download.

Thanks again.
