This is a vintage photogravure and not a modern reproduction. André Kertész (1894 1985), was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and the photo essay. In the early years of his career, his then-unorthodox camera angles and style prevented his work from gaining wider recognition. Kertész never felt that he had gained the worldwide recognition he deserved. Today he is considered one of the seminal figures of photojournalism. A photogravure is the most sophisticated of the photomechanical printing processes. The image isn’t made in a darkroom. Rather, the photographer’s negative is transferred onto a copper plate, which is used to print or engrave the image with ink. Photogravures have a very sensual, almost velvety quality, and were far superior to alternative photomechanical processes of the time. Vintage Photogravures are very collectible and a way to enjoy vintage photography. From the Fine Art Los Angeles Vintage Photogravure Collection. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
