"More than two hundred photographs taken over a period of sixty years, printed in heliogravure in France by Braun, one of the world's great printers, make this volume the most complete assemblage ever published of the work of André Kertész, the man to whom, as Henri Cartier-Bresson said, "we all owe a great deal." In 1929, André Kertész wrote, "photography should be realistic," a belief he has been pursuing intensely since he took his first photographs with his first camera. In these pages, the father of candid photography presents the results of his patient and gentle vision. Included are many of his famous pictures… His famous distortions, so many times copied but never equaled, his study of Washington Square, Spain, Japan, and America – almost two-thirds of the work of one of the unquestioned great masters of the art of photography – together make Kertész's work a poignant and beautiful study of mankind as powerful as Goya 's etchings, as gentle as Mary Cassatt's watercolors."
