In the last years of his life, Andre Kertesz performed what he humbly referred to as "a little play" with a Polaroid SX-70 camera in his New York City apartment. Prior to these last years he was a broken man. Lonely and depressed in a city that never felt like home and where he was under appreciated for his photographic genius. He also suffered deeply from the loss of his beloved wife Elizabeth.
