André Kertész – Mirroring Life

Kertész is famous today for his extraordinary contribution to the language of photography in the 20th century. This retrospective marshals a large number of black and white prints as well as a selection of his colour photographs, highlighting his exceptional creative acuity to reconfigure reality through unusual compositions.

The exhibition comprises of his early work made in Hungary, his homeland, to Paris, where between 1925 and 1936 he was one of the leading figures in avant-garde photography, to New York, where he lived for nearly fifty years. The exhibition pays tribute to a photographer whom Henri Cartier-Bresson regarded as one of his masters, and reveals, despite an apparent diversity of periods and situations, themes and styles, the coherence of Kertész’s poetic approach.

This exhibition is organised by Jeu de Paume, Paris, in collaboration with La Médiathèque d l’architecture et du patrimoine, ministère de la Culture et de la Communication – France and diChroma photography, and with the participation of Foam Museum, for its presentation in Amsterdam.
