    'I am standing behind a camera in order that I can extend myself in front of it.'
    Steven Klein

    Steven Klein took this captivating photograph, the only image to accompany Andrea Cooper’s article on ADHD in women, for Vogue US in October 2011. In this hyperreal photograph, a distracted Karlie Kloss does not notice the overflowing sink, burnt toast and whatever might be cooking in the oven. Klein’s unique perspective provokes the imagination and draws the viewer into the chaotic scene. One of his many collaborations with esteemed Vogue editor Phyllis Posnick, this oversized work best exemplifies Klein’s dark, glamourous and innovative approach to image-making. This image will be featured in Posnick’s forthcoming book Stoppers: Photographs from My Life at Vogue to be published by Abrams this autumn. Klein’s works are held in several public collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the International Centre for Photography, New York.
