Rodchenko wrote: "In photography there is the old point of view, the angle of vision of a man who stands on the ground and looks straight ahead or, as I call it, makes "bellybutton" shots. . . . I fight this point of view, and will fight it, along with my colleagues in the new photography. The most interesting angle shots today are those "down from above" and "up from below," and their diagonals."
 
Beaumont Newhall, The History of Photography, 1982, 201.
