A Passion for Life: Photographs by André Kertész

UNTIL 26 OCTOBER
EUROPEAN GALLERY C218A

Working in the streets of Paris, Kertész was one of the first photographers to exploit the creative possibilities offered by the 35mm camera. He found that certain features of the Leica camera, including an eye-level viewfinder and a capacity for multiple exposures, were ideally suited to his needs. The small format camera he purchased in 1928 was fitted with a motion picture camera lens that allowed him to photograph the urban life around him in a candid and unobtrusive way, capturing what the Russian writer Ilya Eherenburg referred to as “the moment of truth.”
