Hungarian-born André Kertész (1894–1985) was one of the most influential and popular photographers of the twentieth century. This volume presents for the first time selections from the J. Paul Getty Museum's holdings of Kertész's photographs, including work from his Budapest, Paris, and New York periods. The book also offers an intimate look at Kertész through a dialogue between four of the people who knew him best during the last years of his life: Robert Gurbo, curator of New York's André and Elizabeth Kertész Foundation; David Travis, curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago; Sylvia Plachy, photographer; and the J. Paul Getty Museum's curator emeritus of photographs, Weston Naef. The discussion was moderated by Charles Hagen, writer and critic for The New York Times.
