William Klein Biography

Born in New York in 1928, at the age of 20 William Klein went to Paris to study under Fernand Leger, who encouraged his students to reject conformity and the traditional gallery, and go out and work on the streets; this was possibly the making of Klein as an innovative and ground-breaking photographer. After getting married, he decided to remain in Paris, where he still lives and works today. As an artist using photography, during the early 1950’s Klein set out to re-invent the photographic document. His photographs were often blurred or out of focus, and his deliberately over-exposed negatives, the use of high-grain film and experimenting with wide angled lenses shocked the established order of the photography world. Following on from his street work, Klein preferred to photograph his models out in on location and, not particularly interested in clothes or fashion, used this opportunity to introduce new techniques to fashion photography that are still used today, including the use of wide-angle and long-focus lenses, long exposures combined with flash and multiple exposures.

In the world of Mark Steinmetz, the seemingly insignificant moments in life are little frames of unimaginable beauty. Portraits of anonymous subjects become stand-ins caught in a moment of reflection, often unaware of the artist’s presence. Presented as black and white pockets of time, the American photographer slows down the speed to allow the viewer to focus and connect through the familiarity of each touching moment. Steinmetz was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994 and shortly after moved to Athens, Georgia, to start on what would become an acclaimed trilogy about the American South. From the book ‘South East’, two monochrome works from New Orleans, Louisiana, and Athens, Georgia, were released as photographic editions.

DO YOU OWN A DAMIEN HIRST PRINT EDITION YOU WISH TO SELL?
Valium
With two major exhibitions during the Venice Biennale, 2017 was a year which increased the awareness of Damien Hirst. With Hirst still actively releasing new print editions, many collectors focus on his earlier work from 2000 and before, such as Valium, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Opium, Beautiful, Galactic, Exploding Screenprint (Spin) and Painting-by-Numbers.

If you have one of the above prints that you are potentially interested in selling, please do get in touch with us via the Contact page, which you can find here.
