|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.
