Alexander Zhitomirsky (1907-1993)
posted:
“Zhitomirsky was considered the foremost artist of Russian political photomontage. During WWII his anti-Nazi propaganda leaflets, that were printed in editions of up to one million, reached vast numbers of German soldiers.” ----Robert Koch

“What deserves special attention is the fact that Alexander Zhitomirsky established a completely new aspect of photomontage, different from mine and Berman’s. By so doing, he proves great possibilities in the development of photomontage. The difference in our creative handwriting is explained by the time and place it occurred, mainly in that Zhitomirsky’s photomontages, though born in war time, like ours, were born during the very fire of war and therefore have a clearer function.” ----John Heartfield
