Klein at Tate Modern

2 Dec 2012 1:01PM   Views : 283 Unique : 193

Popped in to Tate Modern yesterday to see the William Klein exhibition. It was OK, but I'd seen the excellent documentary on TV a week or so earlier so I'd seen most of the pictures. Except that some had been blown up to a huge size for the gallery. To be honest, having paid over 10 to get in I found it not as interesting as I'd hoped. I still recommend the Bresson in Colour exhibition at Somerset House as being the best I've seen, and it's free!

Nevertheless, having said that, I do admire Klein's work and was inspired to take lots of b/w photos as I walked around. This is one of the less interesting snaps. Klein was on the TV at the time but the person sitting in front of the screen seemed to have made it his ambition in life to thwart my intention to capture a picture of the main man by sitting staunchly in front of the TV all the time I was there. Anyway, got this shot and moved out.

I was asked by some girl tourists to take their picture on the balcony of the Tate with St Paul's in the b/g. Exposure nightmare, but it turned out OK once they'd found the Flash On setting. It was bloomin' cold walking across the Millennium Bridge too, but people were out in their hoards all getting in my way posing for photographs. Honestly, it shouldn't be allowed. Wink
