Artistically avant-garde photographer and painter William Klein (April 19, 1928) captures the essence of Rome in this stunning work, juxtaposing holy and evil, living and dying, love and misery, rich and poor. Although he was originally from New York, Klein focused much of his life in Europe, especially in France and Italy. Slightly prior to the publication of this work, he received the Prix Nadar for his first book, New York, which was published in France in 1957. Reminiscent of "street photographer" Robert Frank in their intensity of personal vision, and crime photographer Arthur "Weegee" Fellig in their grittiness, but with touches of humor and less shock value, William Klein's photographs are as compelling today as when they first appeared. This is the sought-after second book of William Klein's four "city books," published four years after his first book, "New York," and preceding the "Moscow" and "Tokyo" books.
