Stern 44 – Steven Klein
One of New York’s most prominent fashion photographers, Steven Klein’s distinctive photographs have appeared in American Vogue, ID and Arena, among many others. His advertising clients include Calvin Klein, Nike and Pepe Jeans. Klein’s signature style is audacious and aims to disturb our complacency. Unintimidated by the gloss and glitz of contemporary celebrity and fashion, Klein dares to cast stars such as Brad Pitt or Claudia Schiffer as denizens of a murky twilight world. His settings might at first seem run-down, or imperfect, yet each is carefully composed with its own complex code of aesthetics. An overview of an adventurous and original body of work. A unique book sure to challenge, and provoke much artistic debate and discussion.
