Second chapter of iPad and iPhone app series "Great Photographers" features William Klein
The app contains 393 images, videos, lessons, essays, interviews, a virtual exhibition available in English, French and Italian.
ROME.- The App dedicated to William Klein is the second and unmissable chapter of the The Great Photographers apps series. After Giacomelli Contrasto brings to the public a total immersion in the complex artistic universe of one of the greatest international photographers.

William Klein has an incredibly eclectic creativity: photographer, film director, painter. The App not only allows you to surf the photographer’s images, but also to view excerpts of his main feature films and admire a selection of his paintings representing a completely new way of knowing and experiencing William Klein’s work, thanks to the richness of the content, the interactivity and the exceptionally high visual quality.

This App is available in English, Italian and French for iPad. It contains 393 images that can be viewed individually or in slideshow and which you can zoom-in on with simple touch technology. The photographs are enriched by texts and captions written by Klein and dynamically connected to many contents in different app’s sections: it allows the user to have a meaningful, personal journey through the most extensive digital collection of Klein's work available today

An innovative graphic design guides the reader-spectator in an articulate journey across a number of specific paths. Each path intends to study in depth different aspects of Klein’s body of work. The App is also equipped with an interactive path, My Klein, that gives the user the possibility to select one’s favourite pictures and build a hypothetical exhibition to share on social networks.

Unedited "photography lessons" by Alessia Tagliaventi, guide us into the artist's method of composition, and into his poetic sensibility.

Klein’s universe is explored by critical essays by prominent figures of the history of photography as Robert Delpire, Max Kozloff, Alessandra Mauro, Quentin Bajac and David Company;

Interesting video contributions and exclusive interviews with Jean-Paul Goude and Klein carried out appropriately for this App; video footage in which Klein comments his images, tells us about his work and illustrates his poetics


The William Klein – The Great Photographers App is therefore a new experience of close critic examination and interactivity on the complex work of this incredible artist. For the first time William Klein is described not only through his images and his essays, but also through his films, his paintings, his words and through the direct account of those who have chosen to tell us, in this specific occasion, the great artist.
