  • “Kate provided the template in the 90s for the new breed of model but so unique was she that no one could match the contours of her modelling. She is always spot-on in every single frame you may snap. She has a specific relationship with the camera, and if a machine was capable of loving, you could say the camera fell in love with her from day one.”
    —Steven Klein

    For ‘Superstar’, W, September 2003



    ULTIMATE STEVEN KLEIN presents an exclusive curation of 18 unique Polaroid works from the celebrated photographer’s archive. Showcasing Klein’s distinctive approach to photography as a means of storytelling, this exceptional grouping offers a window into the intimate relationship between photographer and subject. Taken between 1999 and 2015, the Polaroids feature striking portraits of icons in fashion, music and film, including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Madonna, Prince, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Brad Pitt, among others.


    A visionary and creator, Steven Klein has made unique contributions to the arts throughout his nearly four-decade career and consistently pushes the boundaries of visual expression through his image-making. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to photography, Klein received the prestigious Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography (ICP) in 2014. His work has been exhibited globally, gracing prominent venues such as Deitch Projects, Gagosian and the Guggenheim in New York. Furthermore, his work is featured in several public collections, including those of the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A in London and the ICP in New York. The artist’s body of work has also been celebrated through his first monograph Steven Klein, published by Phaidon in 2022.
