Douglas Kirkland 'Andy Warhol, Trash'

1970 (printed later)

About the Item

Douglas Kirkland Andy Warhol, Trash 1961 (printed later) C print Numbered and Signed by Douglas Kirkland Edition of 12 Throughout his career Warhol made numerous films, many of which were experimental and pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable in cinema. ‘Trash’ was his most successful. It features Joe Dallesandro, a frequent star in the Paul Morrissey-directed-Warhol films, in the lead role as a drug addict living in a New York slum. It deglamourised the widespread drug scene, showing the ugly side of addiction and graphic scenes of drug injection. This is reminiscent of an advert Warhol designed in 1951 for a radio show called ‘The Nation’s Nightmare’ which dealt with the darker side of American culture – a theme that continued through much of his later work. All other sizes are in an edition of 25 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

    Tom Kelley Woman With Umbrella c. 1950's C print 38 x 32 inches Caption: Woman in bikini sitting on beach holding umbrella, smiling, portrait. Tom Kelley’s interesting career spans more than four decades: first started as an apprentice in a New York photo studio that catered to the city's upper 400 (i.e. photographing the Vanderbilts, the Astors, the Harrimans, the Morgans, etc.). One of his biggest spot news assignments was covering the Lindbergh kidnapping case. Coming to California, Kelley was retained to photograph the stars created by David 0.

A few of his other most famous subjects have been Gary Cooper, Greta Garbo, James Cagney, Clark Gable, Winston Churchill, Bob Hope, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Jack Benny, John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Franklin D. Roosevelt and, of course, Marilyn Monroe, with and without clothes. His easiest photo subject? Clark Gable. His toughest? Joan Bennett. Following a long and profitable career helping to publicize motion picture personalities, he drifted the commercial advertising/photography field where he has remained as one of the leading exponents in the business.
