Kertész had been constantly feeling alive through his work. Up until a few days before his death, he did not stop to photograph and to see his own world through his photographic lens.
Having reached the age of ninety, Kertész spent the last months of his life inside his home. His body was maybe giving up on him, but that did not make him quit photographing, even if his subject matter were the objects that were surrounding him inside the house. In fact, he created a new album, which he shared with photographer Susan May Tell. When she asked him what it was that made him go on photographing, Kertész replied:
“I am still hungry…”

“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph.”
“I am an amateur and I intend to stay that way for the rest of my life.”
“I do not document anything, I give an interpretation.”
