In Meudon, the dissimilarity between the viaduct, the construction at its base, and the dilapidated rowhouses is as unsettling as the man furtively walking towards the viewer with a large package under his arm. Visually tying it all together is the train steaming overhead into the scene. To capture this fleeting image, Kertész relied on his new Leica, a portable camera that allowed him to act quickly when he encountered marvelous tableaus as he wandered the streets.
