After twenty-five years in the fashion industry, Kelly Klein turned her attention to photography and began a career that has blurred the lines between the worlds of art and fashion, passion and commerce. Equal parts artist and stylist, photographer and fashionista, Klein is a revered documentarian of the people and tastes that intrigue her and an icon of classic American style herself. Collected here in PHOTOGRAPHS BY KELLY KLEIN are photographs spanning her career to date, ranging from personal shots to intimate portraiture and editorial work commissioned for magazines such as Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Edited by Klein herself, this is a stunning collection of a rich and varied canon of work that juxtaposes the photographer’s contrasting styles to reveal a consistent sensibility—an effortlessness that reflects a natural translation of beauty in the images. Her photography represents a clear and seductive distillation of the talents and interests that have fueled her career in fashion and design.

From haunting still lifes and profound landscapes to glamorous candid snapshots and sophisticated fashion features, Klein’s unique eye is present throughout—an icon of style lending a touch of her own vision to everything she photographs.
