"William Klein's four city books, New York (1956), Rome (1959), Moscow and Tokyo (1964) firmly established a place for him in photobook history. They have become treasured classics, with the ability to enchant half a century after their original publication.
Moscow is one of my all-time favourite photobooks. It is structured into four chapters: 1 moscovites, 2 privileged class 3 parks and places 4 streets. The matt gravure printing is superb, and the deep blacks add a powerful force. The double pages clearly demonstrate Klein's talent for creating stunning landscape-format images. He comes much closer to his subjects than previously, and paints a picture of a lively, thriving Moscow at odds to the much greyer image the West preferred to portray at this time.
William Klein's stunningly graphic cover design is used here for the first time and he quickly established it as his signature look."
