Observing the Day of Hungarian Culture, Hungarian Cultural Center, New York and the Hungarian House of New York will present 20 rare artworks by André Kertész, one of the most influential figures of modern photography, celebrating the upcoming 125th anniversary of his birth. The unveiling will be followed by the performance of András Hodorog, flute player from Moldova, one of the last living musicians to play Hungarian folk music in such a distinctive traditional style.

 

André Kertész was born in Budapest in 1894 and in 1936, he came to the United States, freelancing for Collier’s, Harper’s Bazaar, and House & Garden. Between 1963 and his death, his independently produced photographs became more widely accessible, and Kertész became one of the most respected photographers in America. His work was the subject of many publications and exhibitions, including solo exhibitions at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and at the Museum of Modern Art.


Photos of André Kertész presented at the exhibit are privately owned by Dr. Ernő L. Holló and Mrs. Irén Holló.
