We were "sportive," we three brothers.... We went swimming, running, mountain climbing--everything.... [Eugenio] had the body of the good athlete that he was and a fine head for a faun.
-- André Kertész
Sixty years after this photograph was made, André Kertész recalled his life in Hungary with his two brothers, Imre and Eugenio, the latter the model in this photograph. Kertész transformed the silhouetted form of his brother leaping dramatically between leaves of foliage into a mythical creature of fairy tales. The oval trimming of the print creates a precious miniature, contributing to the photograph's whimsical quality.
