STRETCHING THE BOUNDARIES
“Everybody can look, but they don’t necessarily see,” said photographer André Kertész.
This couldn’t ring more true for the avant-garde artist, renowned for reconfiguring reality and evoking new perspectives through his unusual compositions. And now his works are on view at Foam’s “André Kertész – Mirroring Reality,” a retrospective featuring a large number of his black and white prints, as well as color photographs. The exhibit examines Kertész’s earlier work in his homeland of Hungary, onto his time in Paris and then through to New York, documenting a career spanning 70 years. The retrospective is an ode to Kertész’s contributions to 20th-century photography.
