    About The Work


    The first and only monograph on Klein, whose hyperreal and sexually charged images have captivated viewers for 30 years–now available as a luxury, limited edition. 

    ‍One of the fashion industry's most cunning provocateurs, photographer Steven Klein has created many of the most iconic images of our time. Klein's photographs blur the line between fiction and reality, resulting in stunning tableaux that only exist within his fantastical worlds. Although his images include some of the most photographed people in the world, they disappear into the narrative of Klein's imagination.

    Over the course of 450 pages, the book unfolds like a film narrative with scenes of gender fluidity, self-harm, gun flaunting, pyromania, murder, arrests, car crashes, body contortions, and genital display. These reoccurring motifs exist as standalone vignettes but also as a sequence of images feeding off each other, slowly building towards one overwhelming, climatic drama. By the end of the book, all the different threads of Klein's creative life come to a resolution. His photo series convey epic narratives, mostly subversive, in which movement and static elements are explored and merged.

    "You give him a dress, and he will give you a girl in a dress with a robot in a garden. It's clever, conceptual, and ultimately lyrical." – Anna Wintour
