André Kertész was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and pioneer of the photo essay. He also made a major contribution to lyrical street photography.

Kertész was influenced by Constructivism and Surrealism, but his own style was an entirely personal blend of emotion and observation.
