Andre Kertesz quotes

transcribed from "Masters of Photography. André Kertész" [videorecording] West Long Branch, NJ : Kultur, 2006.

The narrator says quoting Kertesz (at 15:33 into the film) "In my own work I am an amateur", he once told a reporter. "And I intend to remain one. I avoid virtuosity. When I have found the subject which interests me, I leave for the lens the responsibility for recording the image, faithfully."

Kertesz himself speaking (at 24:43) "I never know what I am doing. I am going out without thinking photographing. I am going around. . .see something that will give me the idea. I do."
