Leading 20th century photographer William Klein had a decisive influence on modern visual culture with his expression that went beyond genres such as photography, movies, design and fashion, and his works capturing the cities of the world, including New York, Rome, Moscow, Tokyo, Paris, etc. In this exhibition, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT introduces the city vision of Klein and Japanese and Asian photographers trying to examine the cities and people of the 21st century with a fresh perspective and greatly transcend the frames of conventional photos.
