Letters from Paris is a collection of letters sent by the great Soviet photographer Alexander Rodchenko to his wife, the artist Vavara Stepanova. 

 

A compilation of Rodchenko’s letters from Paris to his wife, Varvara Stepanova, can be found inside the book Letters from Paris. The three-month travel to Paris was the only trip abroad the artist ever went on. Impression that the artist got from shopping in Paris became one of the central themes in the letters: “There are millions of various goods here, my head’s spinning round, you just want to buy tons of it all.” This inspires Rodchenko to think about differences between attitudes to goods in capitalist and socialist societies.
