Sinopsis: Wide-angle, close up photographs of people, famous and obscure, from throughout the world, from the French Academy to the Guardian Angels to sumo wrestlers
From Library Journal:
Close up is right! Klein put a wide-angle lens on his camera, headed for any crowd he could find, and got as close as he could. He decided not to worry about graininess, blurriness, depth of field, and other technical considerations but to go for a spontaneous feel. He got it. These double-page, black-and-white photos are overflowing with people--blurry, grainy, and out of focus but vibrant, busy, and emotional. His compositions are never chaotic, though. Alternation of large and small forms, off-kilter camera angles, and surprising points of focus are combined to create dramatic visual impact. Highly recommended for all photography collections.
