ABOUT THE WORK
After his exhibition at Foam (December 2013 – March 2014), the legendary photographer, filmmaker and designer William Klein offered exclusively for Foam Editions five different limited edition prints from his series New York.
William Klein made the images in New York in 1955. The photo’s are characteristic for Klein’s oeuvre: filled with grainy, brusque photos which depict the city in a way that had never been seen before. They have a ruthless realism and at the same time visually reverberate the psychological, social and economic mood of that time.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
The career of William Klein (b. 1928) spans more than sixty years. His work had an immense influence on photography during the second half of the twentieth century. Throughout his long and extremely productive career, he has always remained his own man: independent, unconventional, enigmatic and contrary, but in everything exceptionally talented.
William Klein's work has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries worldwide, such as in Italy, France, Russia, Spain and Germany. A retrospective exhibition of his work was on show in 2013 at the Tate Museum in London.
