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.
