André Kertész grew up in Budapest and began to take photographs in 1912, initially of his family and friends and the Hungarian countryside. In 1925, he left for France, and it was in Paris that his photography developed and became groundbreaking.

The exhibition My France focuses on Kertész’s French period, 1925-1936, which is widely regarded as his finest.
