Andre Kertesz Postcards from Paris

Thru Sun 05/29/2022

In 1925, photographer André Kertész (American, born Hungary, 1894–1985) arrived in Paris with little more than a camera and meager savings. Over the next three years, the young artist carved out a photographic practice that allowed him to move among the realms of amateur and professional, photojournalist and avant-garde artist. By the end of 1928, he had achieved widespread recognition, emerging as a major figure in modern art photography alongside such figures as Man Ray and Berenice Abbott.

This is the first exhibition to bring together Kertész’s rare carte postale, or postcard paper, prints. These now-iconic works offer new insight into his early, experimental years and reveal the importance of Paris as a vibrant meeting ground for international artists.
