This publication accompanies the first solo-exhibition about the Hungarian photographer Andor von Barsy's (1899 – 1965) with photographs he took in Rotterdam. The exhibition in the Nederlands Fotomuseum  takes place from January 15 till April 3, 2011.

Von Barsy is mostly known for his movies, but since 1930 he also worked on photo reports at the harbours of Rotterdam. These photos are now for the first time at show. He aimed his camera on cranes and bridges to catch a dynamic image of the modern steal constructions. Von Barsy experimented with positions, lines and shapes to give his photos an abstract character.

Von Barsy's movies are shown at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2011 (IFFR 2011), like De stad die nooit rust (1928) and the experimental movie Hoogstraat(1930).

The publication Andor van Barsy: photographer in Rotterdam 1927 – 1942 will include around 100 photographs with an introduction by art historian and critic Frits Gierstberg, head of exhibitions at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam.
