André Kertész (1894–1985) is widely considered a pioneer of 20th-century photography. The Hungarian-born photographer was an early adopter of the easily portable Leica camera, which allowed him to explore new ways of depicting the world around him. This book presents a detailed examination of his negatives, as well as the technical manipulations he employed. Through a careful selection of images, aesthetic reflections, and historical research, it offers new insight into why Kertész, striking the right balance between the avant-garde and the rise of new media reportage (of which he was one of the main initiators) has left his mark on subsequent generations of photographers.
