We love the work of LA-based street photographer Eric Kim, and we're big fans of his regularly-updated blog. In this 2-page article, originally published on his website, Eric explains how the work of famed street photographer William Klein has taught him valuable lessons that inform his own outlook, and his photography.

Although he trained as a painter, William Klein is best known as a photographer. As well as becoming an internationally-recognized street photographer, Klein also achieved fame as a fashion photographer and commercial and documentary filmmaker. In 2012, Klein received the Outstanding Contribution to Photography Award at the annual Sony World Photography Awards.
