Presentation

Andre Dienes was born in 1913 in Turia, Transylvania, today a part of Romania.

After his mother's tragic death, at the age of 15 he left for Europe by foot (a bit like what Brancusi would have done) and landed up in Tunisia and did odd jobs.

He bought his first Retina 35 mm camera and developed a taste for photography. He came to Paris in 1933. There were already well known people there like Brassai from Brasov and Charles Rado, these two created the Rapho agency. There were other Hungarian artists that one could re-discover throughout these talks. With his new camera, he started working for the Humanity newspaper and for the Associated Press.

His job led him to meet Edward Molyneux, a known CEO famous for Capitaine Molyneux perfumes and a suggestion to cross the Atlantic, to go and work for major fashion magazines like Vogue; Life, Esquire...

After many years, worthy of an extraordinary movie, he worked on a subject which made him dream as a child. The Indians. The Hopi, Navajos, Apaches, but also Harlem and the street.

In 1944, he settled down in Hollywood to do (glamor) studio photography: Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Fonda, Reagan, Liz Taylor...
