Distorsión // Distortion (by André Kertész, 1933)

André Kertész colaboró en París con artistas tan célebres como Man Ray, integrándose en la bohemia del momento. Su talento para descubrir nuevas perspectivas le lleva, en 1933, a realizar una de sus series más innovadoras sobre el cuerpo femenino, ‘Distortion’, que consigue gracias a la ayuda de dos espejos deformantes de circo. Es en este momento en el que se siente fascinado por la “extrañeza de la realidad”, torciendo los cuerpos, jugando a desencajar las armonías, y buscando pliegues que investigan las posibilidades estéticas de la desigualdad.

His talent led him to discover new perspectives, in 1933, to perform one of his most innovative series about the female body, ‘Distortion’, which achieved thanks to the help of two distorting mirrors at the circus. It is at this time when he is fascinated by the “strangeness of reality”, twisting bodies disengage playing harmonies, and looking folds investigating the aesthetic possibilities of the inequality.
