The Many Lives of William Klein (2012) Vídeo.


Uno de los mejores documentales que he visto sobre la vida de un fotógrafo, contado mediante entrevista con el mismo fotógrafo en los paises y lugares donde trabajó, realizada con motivo de su gran retrospectiva de 2012 en la Tate,  es 

The Many Lives of William Klein (2012) - YouTube

Esta en inglés y cuenta con subtítulos en inglés que facilitan su comprensión.

Muy entretenido y, a la vez, enseña a ver la fotografía y a entender lo que el fotógrafo es y trata de ser. 

Recordar que William Klein hizo interesantes películas:

William Klein (born April 19, 1928) is an American-born French photographer and filmmaker noted for his ironic approach to both media and his extensive use of unusual photographic techniques in the context of photojournalism and fashion photography. He was ranked 25th on Professional Photographer's list of 100 most influential photographers.
Klein trained as a painter, studying under Fernand Léger and found early success with exhibitions of his work. He soon moved on to photography and achieved widespread fame as a fashion photographer for Vogue and for his photo essays on various cities.
