Andre Kertesz snippet
Kertész is now recognized as one of the seminal figures of photojournalism.
Andre Kertesz
André Kertész (born Kertész Andor July 2, 1894 - September 28, 1985) was a Hungarian-born photographer distinguished by haunting composition in his photographs and by his early efforts in developing the photo essay. In his lifetime, however, his then-unorthodox camera angles, which hindered prose descriptions of his works, prevented his work from gaining wider recognition. His use of symbolism also became unfashionable later in his life.
