In February, legendary photographer William Klein, 85, published William Klein: ABC (Abrams), the best overview yet of his various and pioneering careers as a painter, filmmaker, designer and father of modern street photography. David Campany observes in the forward that Klein has always been “more interested in the world itself than in the ‘Art World’ or ‘Film World.’” That curiosity makes for a remarkable range, from the urban surrealism Klein invented for the pages of Vogue to his gritty, physical street scenes of New York, Tokyo, Moscow and Paris.
