The first and only monograph on star photographer Steven Klein, whose hyper-realistic and sexually charged images have captivated viewers for 30 years - now available in a deluxe format as a limited edition.
One of the fashion industry's most wily provocateurs, photographer Steven Klein has created many of the most iconic images of our time. Klein's photographs blur the line between fiction and reality, resulting in stunning scenes that exist only within his fantastical worlds. Although his images feature some of the most photographed people in the world, they disappear into the narrative of Klein's imagination.
Over the course of 450 pages, the book unfolds as a film narrative with scenes of gender fluidity, self-mutilation, gunplay, pyromania, murder, arrests, car accidents, body contortions and genital display. These recurring motifs exist as stand-alone vignettes, but also as a succession of images that feed off each other, slowly building toward an overwhelming, climactic drama. By the end of the book, all the various threads of Klein's creative life come to a head. His photo series tell epic stories, mostly subversive, exploring and merging movement and static elements.
The deluxe edition of Steven Klein consists of a molded wooden cover wrapped in stamped faux leather. The book has a rounded spine with book block edges gilded in gold. On the front and back are brass edges with an engraved brass plate, and on the front cover you will find a brass clasp to close the book.
