"I write with light," André Kertész once said of his work. In one of the medium's longest, most productive careers, he created a vast and lyrical narrative that shaped the history of photography.
The first proponent of the small-format 35-millimeter camera, Kertész created stunning images of everyday moments, memories, and scenes. His role in the art world was marked by periods of rapturous acclaim and times of regrettable neglect. In pre-World War II Paris, he was recognized as a pioneer in the medium and a celebrated member of a milieu that included Piet Mondrian, Fernand Léger, and Tristan Tzara. Subsequently, he was known as the inspiration to a generation of photographers, including Man Ray, Brassaï, László Moholy-Nagy, and Berenice Abbott. In later years, however, he endured long periods of obscurity. It was not until the early 1960s that a subsequent generation began to look anew and recognize Kertész's genius.
Through more than sixty years of photographing, he worked without pretense, using the camera to question, to record, and to preserve his relationships to the world and to his art. Collected here are the finest images from his life's work.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1894, André Kertész started photographing in 1912. As an officer in the Austro-Hungarian Army from 1914-1915, he made portraits of fellow soldiers and his surroundings. After leaving the army, he worked as a freelance photographer for international magazines, such as Berlin illustrierte and Vu. He emigrated to France in 1925 and then in 1936 to the United States, where he and his wife Elizabeth became citizens in 1944. From 1937-49 he photographed for such American magazines as Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and Town and Country, and had a contract with Condé Nast. In 1962 he stopped photographing for a living and pursed his personal work taking photographs on the streets of New York. In 1983 he received the Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur in Paris. By his death in 1985, his photographs were included in major museum collections around the world and his reputation as one of the most innovative photographers of the twentieth century was firmly established.
