This astonishing book, for which all the photographs have been selected and laid out by William Klein himself, is an inspiring visual history of a long and distinguished career. His chronologically arranged collection of work includes iconic photographs, painted contact sheets and magazine covers, as well as examples of his seminal photo-books of the 1950s and 1960s, represented here by their powerfull jackets and spreads. Black-and-white and colour fashion photographs range from portraits to filmic and surreal tableaux, revealing klein's revolutionary impact on the genre, whilst film posters and stills show the ways in which he captured and commented on the spirit of the times, creating biopics of muhammad ali and Little Richard and Feature films with stars including Donald Pleasance and Serge Gainsbourg. William Klein : ABC Showccases his masterful achievements at their very best. Supplementing the stunning images is an insightful text by David Campany that in Klein's own opinion would be impossible to better as a succint distillation and fine understanding of his life's work accross a wide range of artistic fields.
An unique occasion for William Klein's collectors.
The most emblematic works in a volume that pays homage to Klein's work. From the perspective of his 90 years of age, from the height of being a legend in photography, William Klein looks back and selects his favourite works, those that he considers to be the best in his whole career, in order to pay homage to photography itself. This book, not by chance titled Celebration, is a tour to his most emblematic works: unique instants captured in New York, Rome, Moscow and Paris, in powerful black and white or striking colour. A true celebration of photography. This volume also includes a text by th e author in which he reflects upon photographic art and explains what prompted him to make this sort of director's cut, this exceptionally personal selection, which brings together the works that, in his view, have made a contribution to the world of photography. A small-format but high-voltage volume that, page after page, makes it clear why Klein is one of the summits of contemporary photography. 120 images
