About this artwork

Before marrying Edith Tudor Hart had studied photography at the Bauhaus in Dessau. The concerns of this school are obvious in the geometries and startling perspective of this image. Note the exaggerated size of the steel supports of the wheel and the minute figures of the people standing on the ground. The photographer's eagerness to document the dynamism of urban life suggests she was aware of developments in Soviet avant-garde photography.
