Lamp/Shadow, Paris 1927
André Kertész, born in Budapest, was so absorbed in the magic of the camera, that even when he was conscripted into the army, he took his camera with him. Photographing fellow soldiers as well as the beauty of nature that they passed through, Kertész’ focus inevitably lead to the fear and mystery of shadows. When he moved to Paris to join the budding young art scene, he moved to the forefront in aesthetic developments in photography; exploring extreme perspective, texture, and geometry of his subject matter.
Contemporary photographer, Susan May Tell, is featuring her iconic portrait of Kertész in this exhibit, as André himself had selected it for his 1985 autobiography. Her recent series: Seen and Felt: Appalachia 2012 was published in “Looking for Appalachia.”
