A consummate street photographer, Klein dived into the middle of les événements of May ’68. But instead of documenting the action, with its barricades and running battles, he focused on the utopian rhetoric of revolution uttered in discussions, crowded meetings, and through megaphones. Blink and you’ll miss Alain Resnais, Jacques Rivette, Marguerite Duras and other notables amidst the thronged engagés.
