Richard Kalvar

After studying English and American literature at Cornell University in the mid sixties, Richard Kalvar worked in New York as assistant to French fashion photographer Jérôme Ducrot. It was an extended trip with a camera to Europe in 1966-1967 that made him decide to become a photographer.

André Kertész

André Kertész (July 2, 1894–September 28, 1985), born Kertész Andor, was known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and the photo essay. In the early years of his career, his then-unorthodox camera angles and style prevented his work from gaining wider recognition.

Josef Koudelka

Josef Koudelka, born in Moravia, made his first photographs while a student in the 1950s. About the same time that he started his career as an aeronautical engineer in 1961 he also began photographing Gypsies in Czechoslovakia and theater in Prague. He turned full-time to photography in 1967.
