André Kertész’s (1894–1985) quest for authenticity made him one of the most influential photographers in the history of the medium. He photographed the street scenes of everyday life and created striking images, elevating ordinary life to exquisite art. A master of hand-held photography, Kertész captured the fleeting moment which became the driving force of his creative work. This monograph is a concise introduction to his work and life, complete with a 4,000 word essay and 55 photographs with extensive captions.
