André KERTESZ - Paris, 1934

A very beautiful, simultaneously realistic and poetic approach to Paris in a vintage edition.

André Kertész (1894-1995) was born in Hungary where he began his photographic activity, but he migrated to Paris in 1923 then to the United States in 1936 and each time his photographic activities will experience new developments. Kertész's Paris is also first and foremost that of light, he also said "I write with light and the light of Paris is my good friend" and writing with light he also writes with shadows that are inseparable from it; he also writes with the night and with public lighting. The Paris of Kertész is that of forms that he reveals through his lens. The Paris of Kertész is not so much that of monuments but rather that of the dilapidated attics behind Montmartre, of poor workers or tramps, ordinary Paris of which it reveals the extraordinary. 46 black and white photographs reproduced in heliogravure, text by Pierre Mac-Orlan. Paperback edition with illustrated cover. Very nice copy despite the change from the white of the cover to a pale yellow (see photo). Ref. AUER p. 207
