Photographer André Kertész created this stunningly simple photograph - with so much expression in such little space and form. The dinner fork placed in balance upon the dinner plate and shadows compose the entire photograph. Is dinner finished? Has the diner simply paused? The slight shadow on the dish and the continued form of the fork carry a sense of future even with the sense that the fork is positioned as thought the meal has ended.
As mesmerizing as it was when introduced, this striking photo might make the perfect invitation for your next dinner party, or, indeed, the perfect thank you for the one you just attended.
