    He continued to organize photography exhibitions for the government during these years. Often credited with devising the key principles of modern photography, Rodchenko is praised for his use of unusual angles and perspective. His first published photomontage illustrated Mayakovsky's poem, "About This", in I affirmed: it's all over. Among other things, it advocated the use of machine-made materials such as wire, glass, and sheet metal in the creation of socially useful art for a society in the midst of revolution.

    This is an early example of his work for Russian industry, advertising Red October confectionary. Through close readings of the works of Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy whose careers covered a broad range of artistic practices and political situations, Victor Margolin examines the way these three artists negotiated the changing relations between their social ideals and the political realities they confronted. It marked the end of easel painting — perhaps even the end of art — along with the end of bourgeois norms and practices. He created distinct images that featured unusual—often oblique—angles and showed the geometric influence of his Constructivist background.

    Afterhe continued his artistic training at the Stroganov Institute in Moscow, where he created his first abstract drawings, influenced by the Suprematism of Kazimir Malevichin From to Rodchenko increasingly worked in the Constructivist style: a completely abstracthighly geometric style that he painted by using a ruler and compass. Alexander Rodchenko became one of the founders of Constructivism and Productivism in Russia. The following year, he participated in "The Store" exhibition organized by Vladimir Tatlinwho was another formative influence. He was the pupil and assistant of Vladimir Tatlin, and his work was initially influenced by Cubism, then Cubo-Futurism.
