Thoroughly documenting the individualistic oeuvre of celebrated Hungarian-born photographer Kertesz (1894-1985) through a presentation of some 350 images spanning his long and varied career, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of famous and lesser-known works that include early depictions of rural life in Hungary, evocative images of street scenes in Paris during the 1920s and 30s, selections from a 1933 series of surrealistically distorted nudes, and cityscapes and architectural views produced in New York from the 1940s to the 1970s. A substantial critical overview of Kertesz's career is amplified by a brief examination of the artist's well-known nude studies and individual discussions of his Hungarian, French, American and "International" periods.
