The Many Lives of William Klein

William Klein is an American-born French photographer and filmmaker, one of the most influential photographers in the medium’s history. He earned a reputation as an anti-photographer’s photographer and has described his work as “a crash course in what was not to be done in photography.”

William Klein pioneered the telephoto and wide-angle lenses, used high-grain film. His photos were often blurred or out of focus, his negatives were over-exposed. He took fashion out of the studio and into the streets.

William Klein was an artist who set out to re-invent the photographic document.

I came from the outside, the rules of photography didn’t interest me… there were things you could do with a camera that you couldn’t do with any other medium… grain, contrast, blur, cock-eyed framing, eliminating or exaggerating grey tones and so on. I thought it would be good to show what’s possible, to say that this is as valid of a way of using the camera as conventional approaches.William Klein

Movement

As the snow is melting outside, foreshadowing the forthcoming change of seasons, the Nature begins to awaken from its long winter sleep. The energy arouses and here comes the time of rapid growth, fresh starts, new life, hope, and creativity.

Those seeds we planted, whether literally or metaphorically, are beginning to send up their shoots to make their way to the Sun. Our truest wishes and deepest desires are searching for their way to be realized into reality.

I’m offering you to watch this beautiful time lapse, that includes stunning footage by award winning filmmaker Jens Noelte and music by international top selling relaxation composer Llewellyn, to charge yourself with positive energy and force for changes.

LIGHT AND SHADOW

Light is a form of expression, form of storytelling. Light is pretty much life.

– Janusz Kaminski

Have you ever thought about what Light is? Apart from physics and other sciences I think that basically light is the life itself. It’s that energy, the ultimate force, that gives life to the Universe. Light and Darkness, their balance and harmony, are the basics of every creative process. The play of highlights and shadows is pretty much the art itself. In photography and cinimatography light is a vital, defining element, that creates a picture we can see.

A photographer is a visual storyteller; we speak through light & shadow. – Janusz Kaminski

Cinematographer is an enterpreter who uses light and composition to affect an audience as perception of what’s going on in that story. – Michael Negrin

Cinematography is about defining light and space. – Francis Kenny

I want to share with you my latest discovery, a brilliant and inspiring documentary “Light and shadow” by Steve Weiss, where legendary cinematographers talk about their personal perspectives on creativity, vision and life.
