The father of photojournalism

Known for his unusual compositions, and for capturing but never commenting on his subjects, the self-taught Kertész spent much of his career feeling unrecognised. He is now often considered the father of photojournalism, however, and regarded as a master by many prominent photographers. The exhibition will include his early works from Hungary, a selection of his avant-garde photography from his time in Paris, and some of his later photography from New York, where he spent the second half of his life.
