Paris, Autumn 1963 jellemzők

In October 1963, photographer André Kertész returned to Paris, almost thirty years after his emigration to the United States, for a retrospective of his work held at the Bibliothéque Nationale. Over a period of two and a half months, he devoted his days to photographing the ephemera autumnal beauty of Paris - from Montmartre, Notre-Dame, and the Jardins du Luxemburg, to the Canal Saint-Martin and the banks of the Seine. Through the lens of his Leica camera, he produced more than 1,500 negatives and 313 color slides. From this wealth of images, he selected fifty-nine of his best phtographs and crafted them into a ferroprussiate proces blueprint for a book. This exceptional body of work remained unpublished during his lifetime but is reproduced here in its complete form for the first time, as the phtographer intended.
