About this title


Andre Kertesz's (1894-1985) quest for authenticity made him one of the most influential photographers in the history of the medium. He photographed the street scenes of everyday life and created striking images, elevating ordinary life to exquisite art. A master of hand-held photography, Kertesz captured the fleeting moment which became the driving force of his creative work. This monograph is a concise introduction to his work and life, complete with a 4,000 word essay and 55 photographs with extensive captions.

There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot.
