‘There was a wonderful iconoclastic talent seizing what it saw. I thought it should be let loose. In the fashion pictures of the Fifties, nothing like Klein had happened before…. In my opinion he was the first to bring into photography what Léger achieved in art — the glorification of the life and rhythms of the street.’ — Alexander Liberman
