Lartigue - Kertész. The great photography of the twentieth century

Comune di Riccione

Riccione's extraordinary cultural season continues this fall and into spring next year, when Villa Mussolini hosts the Italian premiere of two masters of world photography:
Jacques Henri Lartigue and André Kertész, one considered the master of the snapshot, the other the great interpreter of more reflective photography.

The extraordinary Riccione exhibition, consisting of more than 124 black-and-white photographs, brings together the most celebrated images of two of the greatest masters of twentieth-century photography in a single exhibition.

The exhibition
Jacques Henri Lartigue - André Kertész
Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894 - 1986) and André Kertész (1894 - 1985) were born the same year at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. They might have met in Paris between the wars, but their first meeting did not take place until 1972, in New York.

They exhibited at MoMA in 1963 and 1964, respectively, where they were described as a primitive amateur the one and as "the inventor of photojournalism," the other. Both pioneers of modern photography, they left works with a singular aesthetic.
