If you are in London this summer, you should go and explore the photography of André Kertész. Selected photos from his classic On Reading series will be on show at The Photographers’ Gallery. It is the first time this series has been exhibited in the UK.

André Kertész (1894–1985) is one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. He was born in Budapest, Hungary. On Reading is a celebration of the power and pleasure of reading.

Dates of the exhibition: 17 July – 4 October 2009

Thanks to Paul Boocock for telling me about this.
