Lecture / Discussion  |  A Life in Pictures: Douglas Kirkland's 50 Year Love Affair with Photography

Presented by Canon

Friday, July 12, 2013, 5:30–6:30 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Douglas Kirkland has been photographing for over five decades, and his passion in the discovery of beauty never wavers. Photography has been his bride, his companion, his lover, and his confidante throughout his multifaceted career.

He is best known for his celebrity portraits but the scope of his work is far wider.

"Douglas Kirkland's portraits go far beyond the physical appearance of his subjects and capture the very essence of their being with disarming honesty and sensuality."

Douglas Kirkland was born in Toronto Canada. In this presentation he will take you on a journey from the beginning of his career to his most recent work on the set of the Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio and Baz Luhrmann as well as choreographer Debbie Allen's latest musical production.

This talk is presented by Canon.
