a legend among graphic designers

Alexey Brodovitch (1898-1971) is a legend among graphic designers. A Russian who fled the Bolshevik Revolution and eventually settled in Paris and then New York, Brodovitch was one of the pioneers of graphic design in the twentieth century.

He was the art director of Harper's Bazaar for two decades (1934-58); designed and produced several exquisite and highly collectible books with collaborators such as Richard Avedon and Andre Kertesz; was a talented photographer himself; and, through an informal class called the Design Lab in New York, trained a younger generation of photographers and designers who went on to become famous artists and art directors in their own right.
