Around 400 photographs by André Kertész are currently showing at the Atlas Gallery in London – the exhibition finishes on 25 May 2013. The show is divided into two halves, displayed over the two floors of the gallery: On the first floor are well-known still lifes, photos taken in New York and Paris, and autobiographical scenes featuring the artist’s home as well as his wife, Elisabeth.
The ground floor display includes a selection of images from the 1930s series ‘Distortions’, for which Kertész staged reflections of the female body in a convex mirror.
