“…I make what I want to own. And of course, I try to make what I want to see. Sometimes I make work in reaction to other people’s works, or in response to a time, a place, a substance and sometimes in response to myself. When I consider a space, I try to find the perfect response, the response that will highlight the past and it’s tension with today…”

André Kertész (2nd July 1894 – 28th September 1985) was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and his efforts in developing the photo essay. His ability to compose lyrical images, infused with wit and insight would remain a constant throughout his career. Neither a surrealist or a strict photojournalist, Kertész combined a street photographer’s dry humour and eye for the moment with the formal aesthetic of a modernist in his black and white photography. In addition to the street life of Paris, he also photographed many famous artists including Chagall and Mondrian. In 1964 his photography was featured in a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art. The work of Kertész was featured in many exhibitions throughout the world, exhibiting into his early nineties. Pictured is Untitled (Still life on painted bureau), circa 1970, silver gelatin print available at Badger & Fox Gallery www.badgerandfoxgallery.com
