At last night’s evening talk at the Photographers’ Gallery, Colin Ford (first head of the National Media Museum and scribe of the catalogue of the Serpentine Kertész exhibition of 1980/81) announced that he was curating an exhibition for the Royal Academy on Andre and his Hungarian contemporaries (Brassai, Capa et al).
It will be on in a couple of years.
And it will be superb (he says with confidence).
Colin – can I call you Colin? – also said a great many other things in a very informative talk about the life and works of Kertész. Best of all though it was all accompanied by the clack and whirr of a rotary slide projector – including a proper back-to-front slide.
That’s how things should be done.
