Kertész, André - Great Master Photographers: Kertész on Kertész (A Self-Portrait)
Photographs of scenes in Hungary, Paris, and New York are accompanied by Kertész's comments on his career as a photographer.
André Kertész (2 July 1894 – 28 September 1985), born Andor Kertész, was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and the photo essay. In the early years of his career, his then-unorthodox camera angles and style prevented his work from gaining wider recognition. Kertész never felt that he had gained the worldwide recognition he deserved. Today he is considered one of the seminal figures of photojournalism. He was a friend of Calder, Chagall, Mondrian, Giacometti, etc.
He came to New York in 1936 and lived and worked there until his death.
