Dark, intense, sometimes even savage, longtime W contributor Steven Klein’s photographs are indelible images in the over-landscaped arena of celebrity and fashion portraiture. “USAnatomy,” a new exhibition of his work curated by Chico Lowndes at the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture in Sao Paulo, kicked off last night with a blowout party for Brazilian society. The show includes 30 rarely seen Polaroids (shown here)—including a few studies taken during his epic 60-page Brad and Angelina cover shoot from the July 2005 issue of W—opened today to the public as part of the annual IGUATEMI photo series, and will run through August 28.
