Item description for MMV Romani William Klein by William Klein...
In the 1950s William Klein, one of the world's great photographers, focused on Rome, producing a celebrated book of photographs with texts by his friends Moravia, Fellini, and Pasolini. Now Klein has returned to Rome to tell---in his way---how the city has changed in the eyes of its inhabitants, whom he immortalizes in 25 diverse and emblematic groups.
William Klein has worked in fashion, photojournalism, and advertising. He has also directed films. Klein aims always to get at the heart of the matter, which characteristically for him is how to tell a story as concisely and fully as possible. He is the 2005 recipient of the Lucie Award for Lifetime Achievement.
