About

Douglas Kirkland House of Chanel 1962 Archival pigment print Numbered and Signed by Douglas Kirkland Edition of 24 From Douglas Kirkland’s Fine Art Book Titled “Mademoiselle” curated by Karl Lagerfeld. Douglas Kirkland spent three weeks with the most important fashion icon of all time, Coco Chanel. Douglas Kirkland has been at the cutting edge of fashion, photojournalism and portraiture, working for the world’s most reputable magazines, for more than 50 years. As a young photographer in 1961 he was assigned to shoot Marilyn Monroe and during several hours in a closed studio one night, captured a stunning portfolio of alluring and intimate images that survive to this day as a testament to her beauty and vulnerability. Kirkland was born in Toronto Canada. He joined Look Magazine in his early twenties, and later Life Magazine. During the golden age of 60’s/70’s photojournalism his assignments ranged from The Trans Siberian Railway to Japan, from fashion to film. He has photographed the legendary Coco Chanel at work, and the stars of over one hundred motion pictures. From The Sound of Music to Titanic and The Great Gatsby, Kirkland’s lens has explored the universe of fame. His work ranges from exquisite nudes to powerful portraits of the notable and the notorious, from photo-journalism to the catwalk and is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Houston Center for Photography and the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. Kirkland remains in demand today by international magazines such as Vanity Fair and is the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Awards from numerous bodies including the highly valued Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement. When not traveling the globe on assignment, he lives in the Hollywood Hills with his wife and business partner Françoise. Follow us on 1stdibs at IFAC Arts
