Steven Klein Goes for the Jugular with Kevin Federline


“To me, a portrait is a representation of a person and a slash across a throat is the equivalent of a brushstroke. It’s like a classical painting. The slash, the make-up, is a mask that reveals who the person is. For me, the break in the skin shows that all portraits are lies. To see through the skin is to see someone’s reality.”

Steven Klein discusses “his most shocking picture” which will be shown at the “Face of Fashion” exhibit opening on February 15th at the National Portrait Gallery.
