Steven Klein & Madonna « Previous | |Next »
February 15, 2007

Stevin Klein's recent Madonna series---a 50-page portfolio of images in W magazine, that transgress the imitations of the fashion magazine world preoccupation with beauty and glamour.

In this article on Klein it is stated that Klein's photographs become part of the dialogue of who that person is or how they can express themselves.

The narrative sensibility of Klein's still photography suggests a filmic approach that examines the dark side of things: what we have is a straitjacket that emancipates—the S&M subtext commenting on the celebrity’s bondage to image.
