The Les Klug Collection

Les Klug (1930-1988) was a visionary who influenced the art world through his unique approach to photography. What distinguished him as an artist was that unlike other photographers, a picture was not his final product. Rather, it was the starting point from which he developed the hybrid images for which he is known. Remarkable was his ability to manipulate images before the age of digital photograph

Carroll University holds the largest collection of Les Klug photography in the world. Mr. Klug was a Wisconsin native whose work we proudly display as part of the Carroll University Wisconsin Artists Collection.
