Presenting André Kertész: Capturing Paris and New York

Kertesz_print13André Kertész is one of the most celebrated photographers of the twentieth century. In 1985, an anonymous Law alumnus donated a set of Kertész's black-and-white photographs to the Law Library Special Collections. The Law Library is pleased to exhibit forty-two images capturing Kertész's impressions of Paris and New York, the two cities where he spent the central epoch of his life.

The exhibition is complemented by an online gallery of the complete set of fifty prints. Visitors with smartphones can scan a QR code next to each photo to view a description and map that pinpoints where the image was taken.

The exhibit, which will run through July 2014, results from the efforts of curators Loren Moulds, Philip Herrington, and Cecilia Brown.
