Imagine this, one day you open your door, and in front of you, there's a man, in a neon pink ski mask, a lit cigarette between his toes, and a large plate of raw chicken legs placed on the dining table in front of him? What do you do?
The works of Steven Klein inspired this editorial; an American photographer recently named one of BOF's 500 people influencing the fashion industry today. The artist born in 1965 is known for his innate ability to transform subject matter into something entirely unique and always aims to capture the story behind the vision.
“You give him a dress, and he will give you a girl in a dress with a robot in a garden.” - Anna Wintour
Klein's work often confuses people through its odd yet vulnerable nature. At first glance, it may make you uncomfortable, but upon greater inspection, I believe it inspires a sense of curiosity.
So the answer to my initial question: Well, I'd probably freak out, laugh and then ask him why?
