In memory, Marilyn Monroe―who died 53 years ago, on August 5, 1962―is perpetually bital and beautiful. That's the way photographer Douglas Kirkland saw her when they met in 1961. 'She was like the girl next door,' he recalls. 'She wasn't this superstar. She laughed easily and was very comfortable to be around.' Kirkland's photographs of Monroe have been collected in the book With Marilyn: An Evening/1961. (Todd Leopold CNN.com, August 6, 2015)
Picture the scene – you're alone in a room with Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra crooning on the record player, Dom Pérignon flowing freely. The dazzling pin-up is lying on a bed, striking a range of irresistable poses, dressed in nothing but the finest silk sheets. It sounds like an elaborate 1950s teen fantasy, but it is in fact the real-life scenario in which Canadian photographer Douglas Kirkland – then a baby-faced 27-year-old – found himself on the 17th November, 1961. (Daisy Woodward AnOther Magazine, September 25, 2015)
In this book, Kirkland captured the essence of the woman as a beautiful, spontaneous and flirtatious lady. The images are stunning and a sample of the outstanding photographs that foretold of a world-class photographer's career. It is an extraordinary collection of images. (Noella Ballenger Apogee Photo Magazine)
