Autobiography plays a significant part in the work of Andre Kertész. He was one of the pioneers of ‘Leica’ (ie. small, portable camera) photography and a mentor to photographers like Robert Capa, Brassaď and Cartier-Bresson. Kertész, a Hungarian, worked in Paris in the 1920s and 30s. His originality got him noticed. He was an intuitive artist and his search for an innovative visual language was expressed through subject matter and composition, through motifs of modernity and through playful humour and surrealism.
