William Klein has lived many lives.  One of the world’s most influential photographers, he pioneered the art of street photography and created some of the most iconic fashion images of the 20th century. William has also made over twenty films, including the first ever documentary about Muhammad Ali and a brilliant satire of the fashion world, Who Are You Polly Magoo?  Polly Magoo would cost Klein his major source of income, his contract for many years shooting still fashion images for Vogue.  Classic William Klein, doing it his own way following his own path through life.

 

With a major Tate Modern exhibition currently celebrating his work, BBC One’s imagine spends time with William Klein to discover the irrepressible, charismatic personality behind a remarkable creative life.
