André Kertész

André Kertész, a Hungarian born photographer, arrived in Paris in 1926, and became famous, for reason. I love his photography and his approach not only to the celebrities of his time with whom he become friend, but very humble simple peasants with whom he had a wonderful contact too.

He also showed how simple objects can be great subjects.

When I suddenly seen this fork's shadow on the table yesterday, my first thought was of his famous fork on the plate. Then, I put my vine glass near it and took some other photos.

Still work to do on them, but sometimes even still life can be interesting, I think, even as I prefer still people.
