Kinszki's modernist vision of urban life and everyday objects of the modern world are wonderful documents of the period between the two World Wars in Eastern Europe. Photographing both in daylight and by streetlight at night, he witnessed the world around him and juxtaposed elements of form, light and shade to create dynamic compositions.
Kinszki was born in Budapest in 1901. It is known that his first photographs were taken in 1921. He was first published in News of the Photograph in 1931 and in 1932 he wrote an article on the Bauhaus aesthetic. Kinszki also contributed extensively to American Photography and Popular Photography (London). In 1937, he was a founding member of the group Modern Hungarian Photographers, which was an informal circle of artists close in spirit to the New Objectivity. In 1939, they edited the first collaborative publication by the society, Hungarian Photography.
