Biography

Elizaveta Ignatovich (1903-1983) was an artist, photographer, and photojournalist. She was a member of the distinguished October group, an avant-garde union of artists, architects, film directors, and photographers. When Alexander Rodchenko was expelled from the group for his formalist photography, Elizaveta's husband, photographer Boris Ignatovich, took over from him as head of the photography section until the group was dissolved by government decree in 1932. Elizaveta Ignatovich's work was shown in almost all the major exhibitions of photography in Russia in the 1930s.
