Steven Klein: Selected Works
Wayne Sterling interviewed Steven Klein exclusively for The Imagist:
Wayne Sterling: How common is it for mainstream magazines to find the images in an editorial too strong?
Steven Klein: ‘I FIND MOST MAGAZINE EDITORIALS WEAK IN COMPARISON TO THE VISUAL FIELD OF CINEMA AND ART.’
WS: Do you think today’s audience wants pushed images or do they want to sit in a comfort zone given the recession fears of today?
SK:’PEOPLE CRAVE TO SEE IMAGES THAT WILL COMPEL THEM OUT OF THEIR BOREDOM.’
WS: Do you think your images lose something when they’re seen on the Internet as opposed to print?
SK: ‘I AM FINDING MANY IMAGES TO BE STRONGER ON THE INTERNET. IN FACT WHEN THE NY POST PUBLISHES AN IMAGE FROM MY SHOOT OR I SEE MY EDITORIAL FEATURED ON A BLOG AND MIXED IN WITH ITS GRAPHICS AND TEXT, THE IMAGES TAKE ON A NEW LIFE, NOT SO PRECIOUS BUT VITAL.’
WS: What do you see as the future of print magazines and lavish fashion editorials?
SK: ‘THEY NEED TO CATCH UP TO THE MODERN LOOK OF MANY OF THE BLOGS I SEE.’
WS: Your images are certainly cinematic. Do you think we’ll be watching fashion ads+ editorials that are mini- videos or mini-films in the near future?
SK: ‘I AM ALREADY CREATING MINI FILMS ON MY WEBSITE THAT ARE DERIVED FROM MY SHOOTS,’
