André Kertész

Author:

André Kertész is one of the figures who shaped modern photography. From the First World War onwards, his independent spirit led him to practice an art based on spontaneity and sincerity, seeking out the chance moments that “capture the true nature of things.” Tender, nostalgic, modest, he forged a new path for photography, a kind of poetic realism that was neither forced nor showy. “I never document,” he said. “I give my own interpretation.” 58 duotone photographs.

The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price.

Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography.
