Condition: Very good; some minor fraying of dust jacket, slight cracking of inner binding
Arguably the father of modern photography (along with Cartier Bresson), Kertész found ways to frame everyday life in his home of Hungary –and later Paris –in ways that changed the perceptions of photography. He was as much a painter as a poet, as one critic wrote. He had his first one-man show in Paris in 1927 and even then was considered a pioneer of avant-garde photography. In André Kertész: A Lifetime of Perception, editor Jane Corkin presents us with many of his most iconic photographs, as well as some which have never been seen before. Kertész died in 1985 and many of the best monographs of his work, such as this one, are no longer in print.
