This is a rare and remarkable opportunity to meet and hear about the life and work of one of the living legends of photography. Mr. Kirkland’s talk will be followed by a book-signing for Douglas Kirkland: A Life in Picures, $125 published by Glitterati Incorporated, with a foreword by director Baz Luhrmann and his wife Catherine Martin.

In conjunction with FOTOFOCUS 2014, we present the remarkable images of world-renowned photographer, Douglas Kirkland. The images exhibited are gleaned from Mr. Kirkland’s astonishing 60-year career as a photographer for Life and Look magazines and include subjects like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel, Grace Jones, Elizabeth Taylor, Charlie Chaplin, Brigitte Bardot and so many more. Also included are iconic images from the best-known movies that we all know but may not know are the works of Douglas Kirkland—such as the image in the movie poster of Julie Andrews running through the hills in The Sound of Music; and other classics from Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, Titanic and 150 more famous films. The artist was recently the honoree at PhotoLA, and in the Venice Biennale where Vanity Fair Magazine hosted his Opening Party & Reception.

Douglas Kirkland: A Life In Pictures,
Get ready to be dazzled (and informed) by some of the biggest names in photography. We're pretty stoked to announce the photographers who will be giving short presentations in the Moab booth (#750) during the upcoming PhotoPlusExpo show in NYC.
Like all things Moab, we are taking a slightly different approach to these presentation: We've simply asked the speakers to talk about themselves and their work - no sales pitch. Some will be conducting hands-on printing workshops while others will be providing an intimate discussion on their work. Harold Davis will even be giving away copies of his new book!
We're still hammering out the exact times, but the confirmed line up will include Andy Biggs, Barbara Bordnick, Harold Davis, Jody Dole, Robert Farber, Jim Graham, Ryszard Horowitz, Douglas Kirkland, Jim LaSala, Michael Soluri, Salvatore Vasapolli and Michael Zide.
As you can see, all the photographers are at the peak of their game, each having made a huge impact on the photo industry. Expect every presentation to be a keynote event.
Kirkland captured iconic images of the famous star on three different occasions while working for Look magazine at the age of 27.
All the images in this exhibition were printed on Entrada Rag Natural 290!
If you are in the Buffalo area, stop by and see first hand the beauty of his amazing work.
The exhibition will showcase stunning photographs of Monroe as she posed for Kirkland lying on a bed enveloped only in white silk sheets. Photographed by Kirkland on November 17, 1961, she died a few months later in 1962; 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of Monroe's death.
On view are images of Monroe never before shown to the public, as well as a series of aesthetically superior quality carbon prints, made exclusively for this exhibition. The exhibition also includes behind the scenes black and white photographs of Kirkland, taken during his photo shoot with Monroe in a California studio. One photograph shows Kirkland as he leans dramatically over an interior balcony to capture ethereal images of Monroe in the bed positioned below.
All the prints in the exhibition were produced on Entrada Rag Natural 290.
