This is a little old now, but a great documentary on William Klein. Worth spending an hour on.
Some thoughts after watching this in full:
I didn’t realize the significance of Klein’s black and white New York photographs, and really never connected the dots until they blatantly bring up Moriyama, which is super cool… I need to look more into that work.
Also what the fuck with the sexual harassment of the models standing in the street posing for Klein? (referring to the stripe dresses and the striped crosswalk photo) … Those women looked NOTHING like prostitutes, and even if they were what gives anyone the right to just gawk at them and grab their ass? Fuck em, the glaring men sorta makes the photo, but I would never put a model I work with in a situation like that (and that’s not to say Klein had bad intentions - he clearly didn’t - just watch the scene).
Also .. I had a third thing but I forgot. Regardless, anyone interested in photography that has/had only a passing interest in Klein (such as myself) should watch this. Eye opening, fascinating, etc.
