ULTIMATE STEVEN KLEIN: Instant Gratification

“There is inherently a fragile nature to Polaroids and instant film compared to digital; this fragileness, this one of a kind exclusiveness, creates an aura around the object of the photograph – a kind of fetish, a talisman. Talismans are magical objects.” Steven Klein Taken over three decades, this dedicated collection of 24 unique Polaroids presents Klein as a storyteller who creates epic narratives that transform our understanding of his subjects, which include some of the biggest names in film, music and fashion: Brad Pitt, Angelia Jolie, Madonna, Prince, David Bowie, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Alexander McQueen.
