Activity: <em>Untitled</em> (Pole Vaulter)

Activity: Untitled (Pole Vaulter)

Suspended in midair, legs splayed, this pole vaulter must have been photographed in the split-second that he catapulted over the photographer's head. Rodchenko liked to use radical points of view, such as extreme up and down angles and tilted horizons, as a way of looking at things in a new way. Includes discussion questions and activities for use at home, school, and in the museum.
