Boris Ignatowitsch - Photographs 1927-1946 (БОРИСС ИгНАТОВИу ФОТОгРАФИИ 1927-1946)

£11.99

Product description

Boris Vsevolodovich Ignatovich (April 4, 1899 - April 4, 1976, USSR, Moscow) was a Russian artist and innovator, photographer, photoreporter and cameraman. He was a pioneer of Soviet avant-garde photography in the 1920s and 1930s, founder of national photojournalism, one of the most significant artists and audacious "formalists" of that radical time.

Please note: The text of this book is German and Russian.

Boris Ignatowitsch gilt neben Alexander Rodtschenko und El Lissitzky als Wegbereiter des sowjetischen "fotografischen Konstruktivismus". Er Gehörte zu jenen Künstlern, die sich aktiv beim Aufbau der neuen sozialistischen Gesellschaft einbringen wollten. Wie kaum eim anderer hat Ignatowitsch die sowjetische Reportagefotographie thematisch und stillstisch geprägt.

Einige seiner in den zwanziger und dreißiger Jahren entstandenen Fotografien wie "Ermitage" (1931) oder "Dusche" (1935) gelten zu Recht ls Ikonen der russischen Avantgarde. Dagegen sind eine Kriegsfotografien selbst in Russland bis heute weitgehend unbekannt, auch wenn sie unverkennbar Ignatowitschs Handschrift tragen.

Das Deutsch-Russische Museum zeigt daher neben wichtigen Arbeiten aus der Vorkriegszeit vor allem Fotografien aus der Kriegszeit, die Ignatowitsch überwiegend als Fotokorrespondent der Armeeseitung "Kampfbanner" der 30. Armee der Kalininfront erlebte.

Boris Ignatovich, along with Alexander Rodtschenko and El Lissitzky, is regarded as the pioneer of Soviet "photographic constructivism". He was among those artists who wanted to actively contribute to the construction of the new socialist society. Ignatovich shaped Soviet documentary photography thematically and quietly like hardly anyone else.

Some of his photographs taken in the 1920s and 1930s, such as "Ermitage" (1931) or "Shower" (1935), are rightly considered icons of the Russian avant-garde. By contrast, even in Russia, wartime photographs are still largely unknown, even if they are unmistakably Ignatovich's signature.

The German-Russian Museum therefore shows, in addition to important works from the pre-war period, mainly photographs from the war, which Ignatowitsch predominantly as a photo correspondent of the army leadership "Kampfbanner" of the 30th Army Kalininfront experienced.

This is a catalogue from an exhibition of his photographs in the German-Russian Museum in Berlin between 17 November 2006 and 11 February 2007.

The book is in excellent condition throughout.
