André Kertész, 'Distortion 147'

Self-taught Hungarian photographer, André Kertész (1894-1985), became renowned in exile for his beautifully composed photos of 1930s Paris, featuring his radically angled points of view and almost painterly control

of light and shadow. In this show of two halves, the upstairs gallery contains nostalgic visions of the French city as Kertész captured everyday life as delicate and romanticised ‘truths’. Downstairs is his ‘Distortion’ series, in which he used a combination of contorting mirrors to warp the nude figure as he began tinkering with reality.
