Tribute to William Klein

color, Leica, monochrome, Paris, Photography, photojournalism, Street photography, urban life

This post is devoted to William Klein, whose birthday is Wednesday, April 19th. Born in 1928 in New York’s Manhattan neighborhood, he is a painter, visual artist, and above all, fashion and street photographer, author-photographer, fiction filmmaker and publicist. William Klein is an American citizen but he lives and works in Paris, I will not give you the exact address of his residence, but he certainly lives in the arrondissement I prefer in Paris.

I present today in this post a book dedicated to Paris, my birthplace and which visibly seduced William Klein who discovers Europe and Paris doing his military service in 1948. “Paris + Klein” is therefore a book where the artist recounts his taste for disorder and his fascination for Paris, his adopted city. Probably a tribute of William Klein to the french capital. This book contains 345 pages with full color photos and full-color black and white. In 2002, “Paris + Klein” came out of the printing press and with this book a lot of photos on various events and Parisian figures between the years 1960 to the 2000s. A beautiful book for the lovers of William Klein and Paris of course.

Happy birthday Mr. Klein.
