Fork, 1928 (National Gallery of Canada)

Andre Kertesz: Postcards from Paris at the Art Institute of Chicago (until Jan 17, 2022) covers a three-year period between 1925 and 1928, from the time the Hungarian-born photographer (1894–1985) arrived in Paris with little more than a camera and some savings to when he was contributing regularly to magazines and exhibiting his work internationally as a major figure in modern art photography. For those three years only, he produced most of his prints on postcard paper, initially for reasons of economy and convenience, but in the process introducing a new kind of photographic object.
