A Beautiful Collection from One of the Most Influential Photographers of the 20th Century.

Known for rejecting conformity and abiding only to intuition, Hungarian-born photographer Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) used his camera as a tool to explore the human condition in everyday life. He was a pioneer of the "spontaneous" photography movement. Smoothly and subtlety, his work moved between abstraction and Surrealism, Constructivism and humanism. Ultimately, his quest for visual authenticity has made him one of the greatest and most influential photographers of the twentieth century.

ANDRE KERTESZ by Noel Bourcier, is an illustrated overview of the acclaimed photographer's career. This book features 55 photographs in chronological order and text that offers insight into Kertesz's art and personality, as he drew upon his private life and everyday objects to inspire his creative work.

This book covers the full range of Kertesz's photography career, one based on capturing the fleeting moment, from his Parisian street scenes to the still-life photographs made after he settled in New York. His motif of elevating and transforming trivial objects into meaningful works of art is revealed within all of the featured photographic essays, such as in The Fork, where Kertesz used light reflection and pure composition to transform a simple kitchen utensil into an interpretable object. This monograph is an elegantly produced introduction to his innovative visual language and timeless photographs that continue to influence modern photography.
