André Kertész - Photographer's Biography & Art Works - Huxley-Parlour Gallery
The Daisy Bar, Montmartre, Paris, 1930, André Kertész (1894-1985). Widely regarded as one of Europe’s leading photographic artists, particularly for his contribution to photographic composition and the photo-essay. Although he failed to gain popular recognition in the early stages of his career, his later photographs, including works such as The Fork (1928), Melancholic Tulip (1939) and Washington Square, New York (1954) are now amongst the most famous photographs of the twentieth century.

Accretion by Beverly Rayner, photographs and ephemera, housecoat, 5' x 12.5' x 20' 2009-2013. Accretion lays out for investigation the evidence of a particular human behavior: the relentless accumulation of THINGS over time… things that matter to us as individuals, for whatever reasons. This artwork physically manifests itself in the exaggerated form of an ordinary object, a housecoat, covered with the residual ephemera carefully saved by one person.
