The last book William Klein completed during his lifetime: A groundbreaking retrospective covering Klein's legacy of creativity in photography, filmmaking, painting, book design, graphic design and beyond.
Photographer. Filmmaker. Artist. Designer. Mastering any of these disciplines would be a life's work for any creative individual, yet William Klein's career has been celebrated over the past eight decades in each. Klein was one of the great image makers of the 20th century and someone whose work has a lasting creative influence on the work of contemporary artists, photographers and filmmakers.
Featuring more than 250 images, this retrospective explores the entire creative and artistic trajectory of the late William Klein. Led by Klein himself, from content selection to book design, this large-format publication looks back on his uncompromising creative life, showcasing Klein's prolific and relentlessly innovative contribution to the world of photography, art, design and filmmaking.
Published in conjunction with a major retrospective at the International Center of Photography, this book is a comprehensive look at his career. William Klein is best known as a photographer who broke all rules and conventions: Yes focuses on Klein's entire body of work, from his abstract paintings to his startling, authentic street photography and photo books to his dynamic, satirical take on filmmaking.
With a fluid, chronological text by David Campany, this book will be both an introduction to William Klein for a new generation and a source of new insights for those who already know who William Klein was: a true original.
