Original poster for "Šestaja čast' mira"
Rarely has Rodčenko integrated a photograph into a poster the way he did here. The act of seeing is deliberately highlighted by leaving out the second eye. The two-dimensional structure becomes more dynamic through the apparent peeling away of the left corner, which produces the rising diagonals. Rodčenko here plays with the multi-layered nature of the images and has signed with his monogram: RA.
