Andre Kertesz is one of the figures who shaped modern photography. From the First World War onwards, his independent spirit led him to practice an art based on spontaneity and sincerity, seeking out the chance moments that "capture the true nature of things." Tender, nostalgic, modest, he forged a new path for photography, a kind of poetic realism that was neither forced nor showy. "I never document," he said. "I give my own interpretation." 58 duotone illustrations.
