Klett?s solo exhibitions include the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.; the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona; the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Illinois; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Japan. The Antwerp Museum of Photography in Belgium, the Art Institute of Chicago, the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York are among the numerous permanent collections that include works by Klett. Klett was influenced by the late 19th century expeditionary, Timothy O?Sullivan. Famous for documenting the so-called unexplored territories of the West, O?Sullivan?s images always manage to reveal the effects man has had on the landscape. Klett?s work also focuses on the interaction between man and his environment.
