André Kertész (French: [kɛʁtɛs]; 2 July 1894 – 28 September 1985), born Kertész Andor, was a 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.
