William Klein is a legend in the fashion and documentary photography world. His ability to transcend anything he works with is a testament to his legendary status.
Have a look at the images that got him hired at Vogue. He was a master right out of the gate.
“William Klein: Black and Light, (1952-2015) is the second in the imprint series – unique and beautifully produced publications, each dedicated to the work of a single artist; in–depth and in print. Imprint #2 is the first publishing of a seminal maquette created in 1952 by cult photographer, film-maker and master of the photo book, William Klein (USA, born 1928). It is comprised completely of experimental photograms made only with light and movement – events captured and transformed in the darkroom. Created just after and inspired by Klein’s late 40’s/early 50’s geometric paintings and screens, when first exhibited in 1953 they led directly to his invitation to work for Vogue in 1954. The rest, as they say, is history”

LIGHT WORKS The Art of the Photogram

LIGHT WORKS: The Art of the Photogram brings together a diverse selection of unique work from artists from the first half of the 20th century to the present day, united by their use of the photogram for creative purposes. Photograms are a camera-less technique for image making, and produce a 1:1 representation of the objects laid upon a light sensitive material. The resulting image is a negative shadow that varies in tone dependent on the transparency of the objects placed on the light sensitive paper to make the photogram. Unlike photographs, photograms do not provide a sense of time or space, they abstract images and objects from their original context, suspend a traditional reading of the image, and retain an air of the mysterious.
