Magnificent Portrait Photos Of Hollywood Icons Taken By Douglas Kirkland

When you think of enchanting images of Hollywood stars — Marilyn Monroe wrapped up in silk sheets, Audrey Hepburn flashing a knowing grin — do you wonder about the person behind the camera? And how they possibly captured that delicate moment?

For the past 50 years, photographer Douglas Kirkland has found new angles on the world’s most familiar faces. The Fort Erie transplant still surprises himself with stories from the field; like that time Elizabeth Taylor agreed to let him photograph her after a prolonged break from the public eye.
