Steve Klein’s provocative and sexually charged photographies have also been exhibited in several museums. The first was at Deitch Projects in 2003, before a first solo show at the Gagosian Gallery in 2005 where he worked with actors Brad PittAngelina Jolie

“As a photographer I am inspired in collaborating with icons,” said Steven Klein. “Icons exert a magnetic pull that allows the viewer to superimpose a dream reality, a kind of hyper existence. Icons are symbols, the alphabet of desire. Kim speaks this language. Our work together has been an exploration of the power of the image, the beauty of experimentation/the alchemical process of Icon.”
