Format: Paperback
You really only need to two things about this book: one, that Andre Kertesz was a genius, and two, that this book published by Phaidon Press, so it's going to be very well done. The photographs in this book are sharper, more luminous and of a better variety than any other Kertesz book I've seen. The text blurbs that accompany each photograph (in addition to the excellent bio at the front) are informative and sophistocated, going well beyond the usual spartan location/date/f-stop infomation that many other monographs offer. As if that wasn't enough, it usually runs at least half of what other monographs will. Perfect stocking-stuffer.

Great little collection of images by Kertesz. Recommend it as a starter book for new photographers or as a quick sample for a survey of photography. There are many titles covering many photographers in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars kertesz from budapest,paris,and to new york April 30 2015
By fred h. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
there is much about kertesz's work to admire, but what touches me most is the distance he kept between himself and what he photographed. along with that are his panoramic high-angle views. Ernst Haas says, " there is only you and your camera. the limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are."
