Photographer: Steven Klein
Style: Dark, detached, clinical, and with an occasionally violent tableaux. You’re not going to catch many smiling faces on the glossy pages of a Steven Klein photograph. The subject bends to the twisted rules of the Klein universe, instead of the other way around, and that goes especially for his celebrity subjects. Being glamorous in the classical sense is a punishable offense.
