"I came from the outside, the rules of photography didn't interest me...there were things you could do with a camera that you couldn't do with any other medium...grain, contrast, blur, cock-eyed framing, eliminating or exaggerating grey tones and so on. I thought it would be good to show what's possible, to say that this is as valid of a way of using the camera as conventional approaches." - William Klein

William Klein's May Day Parade, Gorki Street, Moscow, 1961 will be offered in our Photographs sale, 2 April 2013, in New York.
