André Kertész

Patron came in looking for books on André Kertész. Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and the photo essay. In the early years of his career, his then-unorthodox camera angles and style prevented his work from gaining wider recognition. Kertész never felt that he had gained the worldwide recognition he deserved. Today he is considered one of the seminal figures of photojournalism.[1][2]

The Fork, or La Fourchette, was taken in 1928 and is one of Kertész's most famous works from this period.[9]
