Did you know?

André Kertész had only been photographing for two years when he made this photograph.


The pustza are the Hungarian plains, vast areas of shrubs and grassland. The apparatus is a typical Eastern European draw well; a bucket and chain are used to fetch the water. The trenches surrounding it may be part of an irrigation system.
