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.

Recommended Reading
Throughout his creative practice, contemporary artist Dan Baldwin has collected images. From old reference books on science or anatomy, biology and nature, to newspaper archive photos from the 50s and 60s - everyday, new thoughts and influences enter Baldwin’s studio. He is drawn to images instinctively, allowing them to impact his works in new and surprising ways. Baldwin describes this unique process as creating his own language, giving him the freedom to shape his art in whatever direction he pleases.
