André Kertész : Walking in the picture

Even ahead of Cartier-Bresson, Kertész was the pioneer of modern photography.  His innovations included street photography, photo essays and photojournalism. After becoming prominent in Paris, a 1936 move to New York led to career doldrums until “rediscovery” in 1964. Kertész’ revered work was uniformly brilliant, “a very personal and gentle curiosity about the moment.” Video (5 min) and images are here.
