an image to live with

is a strangely reliable criterion. What do you hang on your bedroom wall?  So when I came upon this 1929 Rodchenko I decided I could very happily brush my eyes with it morning noon and night into these days of the 21st century. Going forward, as they say. Even though it looks like a print from a scratchy old negative, what would you expect with a subject like this? See the origin of this image here, and treat yourself to the particular kind of time travel that takes you back to the last years of the Vkhutemas. P.S. Perhaps I need a new sidebar category: WISHFUL THINKING…
