Presents "Andre Kertesz: Observations, Thoughts, Reflections". One of the most moving and singular memorial tributes to the art of Andre Kertesz: Twenty-seven contributors were invited to choose their favorite Kertesz photograph and to write about it. These are not self-indulgent, lazy pieces. As Daiter notes, the vintage images assembled address Kertesz's visual sensibility and genius. "Some of the photographs are classically familiar while others are refeshingly obscure. Each of the contributors shared his or her time and talents enthusiastically. The juxtaposition of image with text resulted in a sparkling mixture of memory, emotion, and scholarship" (Publisher's blurb). Some of the contributors include Katherine Bang, Paul Berlanga, Keith Davis, Willem Diepraam, John Gossage, Robert Gurbo, Martin Parr, Sylvia Plachy, Gary Schneider, David Travis, and seventeen other "testimonees" to Andre Kertesz's greatness. To honor Kertesz with observations, thoughts, and reflections is to honor him at the deepest level: He was a great artist because he was a conscious dreamer. This is the third in a trilogy of books on Andre Kertesz by Stephen Daiter Gallery, a culmination that began with "The Mirror As Muse" and "New York State of Mind". One of the finest exhibition monographs ever produced on the great photographer. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 27 plates. Andre Kertesz's "Day of Paris" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy.
