Beautiful Vintage Photos of 1920s Paris by André Kertész

André Kertész (1894 – 1985), born Kertész Andor, was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and the photo essay.

In the early years of his career, his then-unorthodox camera angles and style prevented his work from gaining wider recognition.

Today he is considered one of the seminal figures of photojournalism.
