William Klein exhibition at the Michael Hoppen Gallery, LondonLondon Art Reviews September 8, 2014
The exhibition William Klein at the Michael Hoppen Gallery, London, was very interesting. Klein is an American-born French photographer and filmmaker, who mainly worked in the photojournalism and fashion photography. He was well known for his ironic approach and his wide use of unusual photographic techniques.
Following his Retrospective at Tate Modern last year, the Michael Hoppen Gallery organized an exhibition of large editioned works and unique painted contacts by William Klein.
The exhibition William Klein was a mélange of both the artist reportage and fashion prints. The exhibition was a tribute to the audacious photographic techniques that brought him to celebrity, an opus that challenged the conventions of his contemporaries.

This month the Michael Hoppen Gallery will host an exhibition based on the works and photographs of the notorious photojournalist William Klein.
Born April 19, 1928, the American-born French photographer and filmmaker began by documenting the streets of New York and Paris shortly after World War II. His images often capture the absurdity of American life, challenging common social conventions with an extensive catalogue of mildly-abstract street photographs.

This month Michael Hoppen Gallery will host an exhibition for the works of photojournalist and fashion photographer, William Klein. The American-born French photographer, known extensively for an oeuvre that challenged the conventions of his contemporaries, began by documenting the streets of New York and Paris after World War II. Never formally trained, Klein favored inculcating a sense of experimentation into his work, breaking the rules of focal lengths, close-ups, light exposure and lens choice. He later worked for fashion magazines including Vogue, most famously.
