Imre Kinszki, a founding member of the Modern Hungarian Photographers group, photographed his quotiden surroundings with a modernist eye. Kinszki photographed both in daylight and by streetlight, exposing elements of form, light and shade to create dynamic oppositions, while creating wonderful documents of everyday life between the World Wars in Eastern Europe. Kinszki began photographing in 1921, publishing his first image in News of the Photograph in 1931, and contributing an article on the Bauhaus aesthetic to the magazine the following year. By 1933 he was writing for American Photography and Popular Photography magazine in London. In 1937, Kinszki organized the Modern Hungarian Photographers, a group of contemporary photographers close in spirit to the New Objectivity, and two years latter edited the first collaborative publication by the society, The Hungarian Photograph. Kinszki disappeared during the Holocaust, but a large number of his prints survived, making it one of the largest archives of significant Hungarian photography produced between the wars.
