This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Pioneering graphic designer and painter Alexey Brodovitch was born in Russia and came to the United States in 1930 via Paris during the Bolshevik Revolution. From 1934 to 1958, he was the art director of Harper's Bazaar and collaborated with photographers including Richard Avedon and Andre Kertesz.

Brodovitch also was a photographer, and taught both photography and graphic design in New York at the Design Lab. He was one of the first persons in America to teach graphic design as a discipline and to treat the subject professionally.

He is credited with changing the nature of graphic design because of his asymmetrical layouts with white spacing and his exposure of Americans to avant-garde Europeans artists and photographers including Salvadore Dali, Man-Ray, and Henri Cartier-Bresson.
