André Kertész Capturing Paris and New YorkMore > Curated by Loren Moulds, Digital Collections Librarian; Philip Herrington, Special Collections Research Fellow; Cecilia Brown, Archivist
August 2012 - July 2014
1985, an anonymous alumnus of the University of Virginia School of Law donated to the Law Library Special Collections a set of fifty black-and-white photographs by André Kertész. Kertész, one of the most celebrated photographers of the twentieth century, produced over seventy years of arresting, exceptionally crafted, often amusing images that reflect the artist’s unending curiosity about life. In 2012, one hundred years after he took his first photograph, the Law Library is pleased to announce a two-year exhibition of Kertész’s work entitled André Kertész: Capturing Paris and New York. This exhibition, displayed at the Law Library, consists of forty-two original images of the two cities that most inspired Kertész and where he spent most of his life. The complete set of fifty prints can be viewed in the online gallery.
