Jaroslav Rössler (1902 - 1990) received his first photographic education in the studio of Frantisek Drtikol in Prague. Between 1927 and 1935 he lived in Paris. Rössler belongs to the group of Czech photographers who represented a radically abstract and constructivist art movement in the 1920s and 1930s. Influences of Cubism, New Objectivity, Futurism, and other avant-garde movements of the early 20th century also appear in Rössler's photographs. The photographer combined geometric abstraction, black-and-white contrasts, and sharp cones of light with techniques such as collage and double exposure.
