Anne-Marie Merkel par Kertész

André Kertész :: Portrait of Miss R., 1926. Silver Gelatin Print on baryta paper. | src Städel Museum
The mysterious Mrs. R. exudes a strange mix of distance and intimacy, strength and fragility. Her heavy-lidded eyes are half closed and her melancholy gaze cuts straight through the onlooker. Kertész’s photographs are steeped in silent poetry.
