A concentrated selection of Klein’s work, commented by William, 90 years young.

His first Rolleiflex? Won during a game of poker while on his military service. According to William Klein, his whole life is punctuated by gambling moments, on which he comes to speak here in sharp anecdotes. This free spirit, this loudmouth, has always committed himself to invert the orthodox and to transcend the frame, sticking like glue to his subjects – people, cities, fashion –, which he shoots at point blank. His eruptive photography is inspired as much by brutal photojournalism as it is by the outrageous tabloid-style. "I make books in the way others make movies", Klein likes to repeat. His genius permeates this book, that has been conceived as a script of an intensive oeuvre, which has dictated the rules of street photography. Klein’s device? Anything goes. No rules, no boundaries.
