Douglas Kirkland

Ever since the young Kirkland eternalized Marilyn Monroe, white sheets, and nothing else, the star photographer has been catapulted into stardom. Dubbed ‘Hollywood’s favorite photographer,’ the late Kirkland has shot over 100 movie sets, from ‘Titanic’ to ‘The Sound of Music.’ While his photographs of icons, from Brigitte Bardot to Andy Warhol and Angelina Jolie, are of the same soft and intimate energy as his early Marilyn shoot, these testaments to the world of motion pictures border on the magical. Tender or larger than life – Kirkland had mastered every tonality.
