William Klein


California Museum of Photography

July 7 - September 9, 2018




American photographer William Klein (born 1928) is most known for his street photography, a type of image-making wherein the photographer trawls the urban landscape and takes images of strangers often unnoticed. Klein, who has lived in Paris since 1948, has photographed around the world, making covert images throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. 

 

This exhibition features 40 photographs by William Klein from the California Museum of Photography's permanent collection and an introductory text by Susan Laxton, associate professor of the history of art at the University of California, Riverside.
