Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I write with light," Andri Kertisz once said of his work. In one of the medium's longest, most productive careers, Kertisz created a vast, lyrical narrative that helped shape the history of photography. He used the camera to question, record, and preserve his relationships to the world and to his art. Collected here are the finest images of his life's work. "There is in the work of Kertisz a sense of the sweetness of life, a free and childlike pleasure in the beauty of the world and preciousness of sight." --John Szarkowski, "Looking at Pictures"

Synopsis:

"I write with light," Andr Kertsz 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. Through more than sixty years of photographing, he worked without pretense, using camera to question, to record, and to preserve his relationships to the world and to his art. Collected here are the finest images of his life and work.

About the Author

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.
