My France #2 Poster
In 1928 photographer André Kertész was one of the first who started using cameras made by the brand Leica. Without thinking about using a specific style or finding a specific object to photograph he took pictures of his everyday life. You could say that he was searching for the beauty in the everyday moments. Kertész lived in France for 11 years and his work was constantly requested by different photography magazines and exhibited at international exhibitions. In 1936 he decided to move to New York with his wife and he was soon hired by magazines such as Look and Harper’s Bazaar. His photographs from Paris during the naz occupation in the 1940s were rediscovered in 1963, as they had been hidden by his friend and agent Jacquline Paouillac. Kertész’s years in France are regarded as one of his strongest as a photographer. In his work we see the faces of the avant garde moment in Paris – artists such as Piet Mondrian, Fernand Léger and Marc Chagall – as well as a city on the verge of change.
