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
12 – 15 November 2015 | Paris Photo, Grand Palais, France
27 November 2015 – 30 January, 2016 | ATLAS Gallery, London, UK

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.

Maybe one of the most influential photographers (along with her late husband Bernard) to have lived in the modern era….

“They are best known for their extensive series of photographic images, or typologies, of industrial buildings and structures, often organised in grids. As the founders of what has come to be known as the ‘Becher school’ they influenced generations of documentary photographers and artists. They have been awarded the Erasmus Prize and the Hasselblad Award.”  via https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernd_and_Hilla_Becher
