Photographer. Photojournalist. Industry legend. Douglas Kirkland has been taking pictures for over 50 years. He's built an archive of more than a million images—a body of work that grows larger every day.

Douglas Kirkland (born 1934 in Toronto, Ontario) is a prominent photographer based in the United States. At age twenty-four, Kirkland was hired as a staff photographer for Look magazine and became famous for his 1961 photos of Marilyn Monroe taken for Look's 25th anniversary issue. He later joined the staff of Life magazine. ( via wikipedia)

For the first time, Douglas has assembled a collection that celebrates the complete scope of his photography, laid out in a new book called A Life in Pictures.

"I honestly, truly never believed it would happen but I got very lucky in my lifetime." - Douglas Kirkland ( via pdngallery.com)

This documentary follows him as he selects images for the book, reviews the proofs, and receives the final print, while recalling the most pivotal moments in his career.

Hear stories about working with Hollywood greats and learn the history behind cameras from his extensive collection, including the Kodak Brownie that started it all.
