Artist in Focus: Steven Klein

"There is a desire to link photography with painting. My background is painting and I feel there is no connection between the two. It is as if the camera is linked to a sin, producing a bastard art form that we feel we must link to the past in order to give it credentials. I don't want those credentials. I have no need to apologise for photography. My archives exist only for sound business reasons; otherwise my work would be disposable. And there lies the contradiction, for I am a private person not an exhibitionist, I am a person who lives for the future, not the past; I am standing behind a camera in order that I can extend myself in front of it."
Steven Klein

I would love to spend a day and just observe Steven. His work not only paints an exquisite picture, it also over flows with brooding intelligentsia and an ambitious streak to test those with a convoluted view of reality. His production goes beyond mainstream and he exceeds the expectations of those part of the industry every single time.

Amazing photography. His take on photography vs art is fascinating. I'm sure there are people who would disagree, but I admire him for classifying where the difference lies in his opinion.
