About

William Klein (born in New York, NY, on April 19, 1928) is a photographer and filmmaker. Though born in New York and educated at the City College of New York, Klein is predominantly active in France. He has directed a number of feature films, including the 1966 film Who Are You, Polly Maggoo? the Cinéma vérité documentary Grands soirs et petits matins that observes the May 1968 events in France, and the satires Mr. Freedom and Le Couple Témoin. He also directed the 1969 documentary Muhammad Ali: The Greatest. Klein's photography won the Prix Nadar in 1956. [wiki] In just three months William Klein produced one of the most renowned books of the 1950's, Life is Good and Good for You in New York: Trance - Witness - Revels. This was intended, he said, "as a monster big-city Daily Bugle with its scandals and scoops that you’d find blowing in the streets at three in the morning." Klein had been a student of the painter Fernand Leger, whose advice had been to "get out of the studio into the streets...to be monumental." Klein’s work is monumental street art, far removed from the mainstream documentary style of the fifties. In 1958 Klein turned to film-making, only returning to photography in 1980.[V&A]
