Paris + Klein is a new photographic project that the artist dedicates to his adoptive city, Paris. Like in other works he has already made, Klein tries to explore and tell his sensations living in the city he has always loved, using his typical vision.

The exhibition, counting more than one hundred black & white photos, shows little stories of the lifestyle in the principal cities he has explored. His style has influenced the vision of many photographers around the world and will continue doing so.

Paris + Klein is a puzzle of images: people on the streets, fashion world, policemen, politicians, and sport personalities, everyone shown with the artist’s gloomy and sometimes comic vision and style.
