Alexey Brodovitch exerted significant influence on American graphic design and photograph during his 25 year tenure as art director of Harper's Bazaar. His use of asymmetrical layouts, white space and dynamic imagery changed the nature of magazine design. Brodovitch exposed Americans to the European avant-garde by commissioning work from leading European artists and photographers including A.M. Cassandre, Salvador Dali, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Man Ray.
